Course Mapping & Alignment
Heather Rippetoe and Lacy Means
September 12, 2023

Aligned courses ensure students’ knowledge and skills are measured according to established learning objectives. Courses are deemed "aligned" when instructors ensure that assessments, activities, and content closely match the course and module learning objectives. In this workshop, we will discuss the benefits of creating and reviewing both course-level and module-level learning objectives. We will also show examples of mapping at the daily, weekly, and semester levels for alignment in different disciplines.

Course learning objectives guide faculty in their course design and give students insight into the knowledge and skills they will be learning throughout the semester. Join us to discuss two ways to develop and evaluate course and module learning objectives: SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound) and ABCD (Audience, Behavior, Condition, Degree).
