Smart Curriculum Mapping and Its Role in Outcome-based Education
Educational development processes are essential for successful academic performance in educational and technical environments. Teachers and students also need a model and guidelines required for effective learning. Without effective curriculum mapping, the institutions cannot accurately estimate outcomes and maximize potential performance on resources. A matrix depicts the relationship between student learning outcomes (SOs) and topics on the curricular map. The need to earn satisfying produce of education and achieve considerable progress in the visibility of education equity in completing professional duties is a primary motivation for learning the curriculum. One of the most effective strategies to increase overall teaching effectiveness, involvement, or curricular interaction is curriculum development. The mapping connects all disciplines to academic outcomes and displays well-planned teaches. An excellent example of a curriculum should be well-prepared and purposefully encourage expertise acquisition. This paper describes a set of range standards and recommendations for this technique and challenges that affect curricular map construction. As a result, this strategy will increase the overall performance of education and the quality of the curriculum.
