Outcome Based Education

Curriculum Mapping

Curriculum mapping is an important process in the development of a successful outcome-based curriculum. The curriculum map provides an overview of the extent to which the course ILOs, along with the teaching and assessment methods, are being aligned with the program ILOs. It can also help identify any gaps in the curriculum for users to make appropriate adjustments for improving the program coherence, with an aim to ensure that all program intended learning outcomes (ILOs) are addressed at course levels, and the course ILOs are addressed in assessment tasks.

Division/Departments can use an open source web-based system, Programs and Courses Outcomes System (PACOS), to create, access and edit the program and course information, and to define the relationship between them. PACOS can be accessed via the link: http://pacos.ust.hk.
