ABSTRACT
Concept mapping is typically used as a classroom tool for students to construct their own learning by illustrating the relationships and linkages among complicated concepts and their component parts. This paper reports on the application of concept mapping to create curricular schematics for academic programs that must be aligned to specific competencies. The competencies are mapped and represented in a visual framework to give administrators and faculty, as well as students, a better understanding of main ideas and how key concepts are integrated. Mapped representation of curriculum can be used to validate complicated curricula content and to assess student learning.
