This infographic was created by a recent Champlain College graduate to highlight the essential features of the innovative common Core curriculum. The diagram allows a quick view of required courses that are offered together, an understanding of the focus disciplines emphasized in each course, and how the courses build on one another to create a coherent four-year experience.
The curriculum is built on high-impact practices that encourage inquiry and reflection across courses, across disciplines, and between the Core and students’ professional major courses. Through linked courses and interdisciplinary learning communities, the student focus moves from the self, to the community, to western society, to the world, culminating in an integrative capstone. From start to finish, courses include common assignments that are assessed using an e-portfolio and mapped to desired student learning outcomes.Tags: integrative learning, mapping gened
