Kopera-Frye, Karen; Mahaffy, John; Messick Svare, Gloria
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v1 p8-14 2008
Curriculum mapping is a versatile process tool that can help faculty discern whether different curriculum components align; and if not, what adjustments can be made. Through this process faculty create a graphic portrayal of the program outcomes, the courses that comprise the program, and their relationship to the program's purpose. This article describes both the curriculum mapping process and resulting map, highlighting the versatility of this approach by sharing examples of how it has been used by several academic units.
