What are program Guidelines, Design and Mapping used for?

  1. The aim is to help the course organiser to plan and conduct the course. The guidelines include information on the main steps and stages in sequence of designing a training course all the way to evaluation for feedback into further development.

  2. The design and development process of training material is anything but linear. It’s very iterative but it’s a challenge and a difficult task. Designing a training course is like mapping out a road trip or creating a journey. A training design is basically an outline of all the ”what, where, who, when and how” details of the training for use by providers.

  3. Program mapping shows Training Providers  how the learning strategies embodied in individual courses work together to produce student learning outcomes, and how courses work together to build learning outcomes for an entire program. A complete program map clearly shows gaps or overlaps in the development, practice and assessment of the broader capabilities, attributes and discipline requirements.

  4. Learning objectives are central to designing a training course. They must reflect the needs assessment results and work in harmony with training methods and design. A learning outcome is a statement of what a learner is expected to know, understand, or be able to do as a result of a learning process.

  5. By analysing a program map, you can see whether the program currently integrates all its specified attributes and, if so, how effectively it does this. Subsequently, you might revise course and program outlines to include clear statements of the graduate attributes they develop.
