Develop Connections Between Courses
Your students deserve a coherent learning experience as they move through their college programs.
Unfortunately, all too often, students encounter a disconnected series of courses with notable and frustrating gaps and redundancies in material.
As a faculty member, for your part, you may have difficulty finding ways to move beyond the isolation of their individual courses to combine them into a more coherent overall program for students.
By using curriculum maps, you can remedy this situation.
- You can develop connections between courses and relate them to the larger context of the student experience, providing a seamlessly optimal program.
- You can also find ways to engage faculty in a meaningful conversation about the interdependence of their separate classes.
- This is particularly important due to increased scrutiny and oversight of outcomes by accrediting agencies, funders, students, and employers.
