Mapping Gen Ed at Georgia Perimeter College

How do you map Gen Ed for a campus? With 23 curriculum maps, if you are Georgia Perimeter College. Using a consistent template for their 2005 publication of goals, actions, documentation, and assessment procedures, the institution collected the mapping for whole departments as well as selected individual courses.

The "General Education Goals" are written as measurable student learning outcomes. The organization on a web page allows a fast scan (although the web page is actually quite lengthy). Access it at the Academic Assessment Resources for Quality Improvement web site sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning.

For the full picture of the College's effort, you may want to start with the link to General Education Outcomes before going to the Curriculum Maps for General Education area. These resources are only two among more than a dozen links worth clicking through.
