Curriculum Alignment

Learning outcomes are often described at various levels across an institution's curricula. As depicted in the figure above, this can include course-level outcomes, program-level outcomes and University-level learning outcomes. In order to ensure an aligned curriculum, at the course level an instructor can align course-level learning outcomes to those described at the major or degree program. In defining major or degree level learning outcomes, curriculum committees should ensure alignment with University-level learning outcomes and, where applicable, those of accreditation bodies.
