Curriculum Mapping

Curriculum mapping is a process that actively engages faculty and administrators on balancing content across a given curriculum. It is essential in bridging learning gaps and addressing redundancies. Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacob defines curriculum mapping model as one that focuses on the recommendations, requisites, and desires that affect students’ learning and teaching

A great curriculum map is a living document that is consistently revised and updated to reflect changes to the curriculum and learning outcomes.

Example: Construction Management Curriculum Map
