Next Generation Program Mapping

Sophia Palahicky | Royal Roads University

Workshop | Tuesday, May 7 at 9:00 am – 10:15 am | LIB 312

Program mapping is viewed as a way to capture the learning journey – an opportunity to identify the state of the curriculum as well as the teaching process itself, and determine areas for adjustment and improvement (Bath, Smith, Stein, & Swann, 2009, p. 324). Program mapping processes can identify gaps, strengths, and weaknesses of the learning journey and provide a snapshot of the current state of programs to aid purposeful discussions for program improvements. This workshop will provide you the opportunity to explore ways to purposefully integrate experiential learning within the design of the student experience. You will learn about a brand-new program mapping application designed and developed at Royal Roads University that is used to move toward greater intentionality and transparency of program design.
