Curriculum Mapping in Higher Education: A Vehicle for Collaboration
Uchiyama, Kay Pippin; Radin, Jean L.
Innovative Higher Education, v33 n4 p271-280 Jan 2009
This qualitative study makes the case for the implementation of curriculum mapping, a procedure that creates a visual representation of curriculum based on real time information, as a way to increase collaboration and collegiality in higher education. Through the use of curriculum mapping, eleven faculty members in a western state university Teacher Licensure program aligned and revised the teacher education curriculum across a sequence of courses. An increase in collaboration and collegiality among faculty emerged as an unintended outcome as a result of participation in the project.
