Curriculum planning and mapping
Curriculum mapping provides a planning framework
Curriculum planning is a complex process where faculty define intended learning outcomes, assessments, content and pedagogic requirements necessary for student success across an entire curriculum. The Teaching and Learning Centre’s educational consultants provide curriculum support to Faculties and departments to facilitate high-quality learning experiences for students.
