Curriculum Maps

A curriculum map is a graphic that shows how courses in the curriculum for a degree program contribute to meeting the learning outcomes of the program. American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) also states that a curriculum map is a pathway for learning. It is a tool for faculty to use in developing their assessment plan. For example, a curriculum map can be a table with one column for each learning outcome and one row for each course or required event/experience (or vice versa: each row contains a course and each column lists a learning outcome).
