Curriculum Mapping

« Back to Glossary Index

Curriculum Mapping is a process of identifying a learning objectives or competency standard (e.g. a national competency framework) and showing how the content of the curriculum relates to that standard. Curriculum mapping answers the question of “where do we teach what?” and enables us to identify gaps, redundancies and elements that need to be strengthened in relation to what a standard indicates.
