Curriculum Development and Review

Curriculum development and review is an iterative process involving visioning, crafting learning outcomes, collecting data, curriculum mapping, constructively aligning assessments and teaching methods, and ongoing analysis and review. A well-designed curriculum can result in more effective teaching and enhance the student learning experience.
