General Information

The KS Curriculum Management Module provides the ability to propose, create, modify and retire learning experiences that are part of an institution's sanctioned curriculum.

Definitions

Catalog

The collection of approved learning experiences that an institution may offer to its students.

Course

A learning experience that imparts education through a series of activities such as lectures, labs, recitations, etc. within a well-defined time period; it results in an assessment (e.g., grade) and an outcome (e.g., credits).

Credit Course

A course which, upon successful completion, results in the award of academic credit.

Non-Credit Course

A course which, upon successful completion, results in the award of non-academic units, such as Continuing Education Units.

Programs

A prescribed grouping of learning experiences that leads to a recognized body of knowledge; the end result of a completed program may be an acknowledged level of accomplishment (e.g. a major, minor or concentration) or a credential (e.g. certificate, degree, etc.)

Core Program

A prescribed grouping of courses that is required for all students as a foundation of general knowledge. Also known as General Education

Credential Program

A prescribed grouping of learning experiences that leads to a credential.

     Baccalaureate

An organized curriculum leading to a baccalaureate degree in a major area of study.

     Masters

A postgraduate academic program typically designed for learners after the completion of a baccalaureate program

     Doctoral

A postgraduate academic program typically representing the highest level of study in a field; designed for those wishing to conduct research in that field

     Professional

A postgraduate academic program typically representing the highest level of study in a field; designed for those wishing to practice in that field

     Certificate

An organized curriculum leading to a certificate in an area of study.

Academic Program

aka, Major; An organized curriculum offered as a major area of study recognized as an academic discipline by the higher education community as part of a credential program

Minor

An organized curriculum offered as part of an individual student's credential program and which enhances or complements the credential to be awarded in a manner that leads to specific educational or occupational goals.

Specializations

Variations and/or refinements of an Academic Program that lead to specific educational or occupational goals.

Other Learning Experiences

 

Project

An individualized student learning experience designed to culminate in a "product"  that synthesizes the learning obtained by the student.  Examples of projects include theses, dissertations, research projects, and/or capstone projects. An important attribute of the project is the supervisory committee and associated rules regarding its make-up.  Typically, projects will be associated with degree and certificate programs.

Experiential Learning

An individualized student learning experience that emphasizes learning by "doing" rather than "producing."  Examples include service learning, internships, clerkships, and co-operative education.

Tests

A procedure for evaluating learning of student; may be used to award credit and/or fulfill a requirement.

Course Set

A set composed of one or more Courses

Fixed Course Set

A Course Set whose elements are defined explicitly by the course number, e.g. (MATH101, MATH102, MATH103)

Dynamic Course Set

A Course Set whose elements are defined implicitly by some criteria, e.g. (100-level math courses); were a new 100-level MATH course be added to the curriculum, it would automatically be added to this course set as well.

Single-Use Course Set

A single-use Course Set is one which is created 'on the fly' when building a rule and is not available for use in other rules.

Reusable Course Set

A reusable Course Set is one which is created prior to building a rule, named, and saved, and is available for use in other rules.

Proposal

A description of a learning experience, typically authored by faculty, that is submitted for review by the appropriate curricular oversight organization; if approved, the learning experience becomes part of the institution's curriculum

Learning Objective

A statement, usually written by a faculty member, that describes the knowledge, skills, or abilities that a student would expect to gain by participating in a learning experience

Single-Use Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives that are defined within the context of a specific Course or Program and are not maintained as part of a centralized inventory.

Governed Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives that are defined by a group of people external (eg. accreditation bodies) or internal (eg. a department, or an organization of biology, chemistry, and physics departments) to the institution. These Learning Objectives may only be modified by the internal organization of people who entered them with the expectation that these centrally managed, 'governed' learning objectives may be imported directly into courses or programs.
