Our work at UBC is focused on enhanced support for program redesign around competencies; the development of problem-solving experiences; technology-enabled learning; continued growth in work-integrated education. Sustained progress requires leadership across the institution to model, inspire and celebrate excellence in teaching and mentorship.

To create an immersive learning experience that fosters competencies identified by faculties and departments as critical to the discipline, a curriculum map can be an effective way to visualize the program structure, list of courses, teaching and learning activities, and assessment practices. This “integrative and sustainable” (Kalu & Dyjur, 2018) process is collaborative and geared towards student success.

Our Solution

This customizable online tool is a vehicle to curriculum mapping and alignment. The information presented after completing the tool’s wizard should allow instructors and departments make informed decisions to enhance the course/program as well as the overall student experience and learning.

Our Goals

UBC Okanagan is committed to providing the highest quality of education to all students. This means ongoing work for continuous improvement and innovation of teaching and learning practices across disciplines.

This website aims to support this commitment by providing all instructors with a tool to ideate, create, and evaluate new or already existing courses and programs, using backward design and constructive alignment perspectives. Engaging in this important exercise benefits students, instructors, and our overall communities.
