Curriculum Mapping

Curriculum maps give students (and faculty and other stakeholders) a clear picture of where they are going (by showing intended outcomes and life roles),  where they must start from, and how the course work and assessment points are connected to each other and to the intended learning outcomes.

If a department does not offer a program itself, it may still have a map which illustrates how its courses and sequences are related to the intended outcomes for that department.  (See the Art map for an example of a departmental map.)

The Power of Program Mapping

The power of program mapping is the conversation it stimulates – a conversation that focuses on resolving strategic and systemic issues like:

  • better alignment of both content and learning activities with intended outcomes,
  • increased connectivity between courses or workshops; awareness of repetition and transfer of essential content
  • alignment of program capstone experiences and assessment tasks with each other and with the intended outcomes, 

  • concern for consistent bench-marks and standards across the program
  • the collection and use of evidence.
