During working sessions with university program leadership, ASP will lead conversations surrounding program structure, program outcomes and competency alignment, course sequencing and offering schedule, entrance/exit competencies, accelerated course design, program schedule and duration, the student profile and online experience, and accommodation of unique university practices. These planning sessions provide the foundation for the work faculty will do in their individual courses.
The Academic Program Planning team leverages the power of program mapping support software and tools to help faculty strengthen their curriculum in support of industry career-pathing, upskilling and reskilling opportunities, and continuous improvement as it relates to meeting the ever-changing needs of employers and the workforce.
Academic program planning leadership also offers faculty professional development workshops as part of the planning process focused on a core curriculum of online teaching and learning best practices that include subjects like course mapping, workforce alignment, accessibility, and course facilitation.
