The shortage of talents in embedded systems area highlights the need for the revolution of university education in this field. The curriculum design of embedded system is not only limited to several courses, but requires involvements from multiple parties such as universities, students, teachers, IT companies and the society. Therefore, in this paper we propose a global curriculum design framework which has an overall view of the process. The framework forms into a cycling pattern which is able to adapt to the changes of time and society. For some existing problems of traditional teaching, within the framework we propose a new teaching method called -LPCFT (Lecture, Practice, Competition, Feedback, and Tutoring). This method exploits cased-based teaching and provides an interactive platform for teachers and students. Then we present the overall view of courses in embedded system education and illustrate how to stir up students' study motivation. Students can be good motivated by their interests and demands of future jobs in the society. Although we choose the curriculum embedded system as the example to illustrate our teaching framework, the ideas and methods proposed in this paper are also applicable to many other curriculum design tasks.
