Curriculum Mapping is an outcomes assessment process involving an analysis of the curriculum. Mapping is an evidence-based way that organizes a visual matrix/tool used to identify relationships between different institution learning structures.
Mapping is inherently about alignment in educational environments around learning, and as Jankowski (2017) observes, alignment is “a mechanism by which to counteract incoherence and fragmentation of the college experience.” Mapping, therefore, is a strategy for visualizing the areas of where we think learning is happening as it relates to specific learning outcomes (NILOA, 2018).
The process examines the connections (and/or misconnections) within a program’s progression of student knowledge/skill/application of subject matter, identifies general education competency pathways, and incorporates institutional goals/mission.
