Support for curriculum design
As faculty design their course curriculum they're guided by a process developed by the Academic Affairs Council's Curriculum Development Subcommittee. A course consists of three components: Course Program of Study templates; Course Outcome Summary; and a Lab Fee Justification Form. To maintain accurate, complete records for a course, all three components must be submitted to Curriculum Support Services each time any one component is revised.
Below are curriculum-related manuals, documents, forms and links to technology support tools as you develop your course curriculum.
