Curriculum Mapping: How and Why
New faculty liaisons often report that they don’t know how to get started in assessment. And it’s common for both new and established liaisons to report some confusion about what the program actually should be assessing. This can threaten liaisons’ confidence and self-efficacy, even though the actual work of assessment generally is quite straightforward. Enter the curriculum map!
This session explains curriculum maps as a graphical illustration of student learning across experiences. Both an organizational schema and a communications device, the curriculum map clarifies what happens within a program of study. It can reveal redundancies of instruction, opportunities for new courses and programming, and important moments for the assessment of learning. In a nutshell, it can help a program get organized and get started. The session will include specific instructions for various approaches to curriculum mapping.
