Connect Learning Across Courses with Curriculum Mapping

Featured Higher Education Presenter:
Peter Wolf

Do the courses at your college relate to one another in a coherent manner?

Or, are they each separate entities with little connection?

No matter how good your individual courses are, without cross-curriculum coordination, vital learning opportunities will be lost. Ideally, your institution will provide seamlessly aligned coursework free of gaps or inefficient redundancies.

To reach this ideal, more and more schools are turning to curriculum mapping. Curriculum maps can enhance your programming and engage your faculty while standing up to increased oversight by accrediting agencies, funders, students, and employers.

Individual faculty members typically do not have the means or time to look beyond their individual courses to the overall combination of learning experiences encountered by students. Curriculum mapping offers a potent opportunity to move faculty out of their disciplinary silos and to get them to participate in this crucial conversation.

In Connect Learning Across Courses with Curriculum Mapping, presenter Peter Wolf of the University of Guelph will explain how you can get started with curriculum maps at your school.

In this seminar, you will learn:

  • What curriculum maps are, and how to use them at your school
  • How to enhance and reinforce learning across the curriculum
  • Three main types of mapping: structure, alignment and evidence
  • Facilitation approaches to curriculum mapping
  • How to use program outcomes to guide curricular decisions
  • High-tech and no-tech ways to map curricula
  • Ways to enhance curriculum mapping with technology
  • Using data to drive academic program design
