I have been working lately with universities at the undergraduate and the graduate levels on curriculum mapping. It's obviously a different focus than would be used for elementary and secondary levels but it yields even richer data as we uncover gaps, overlaps and areas where universities can work together to build on their curricular and instructional strengths and identify areas that need improvement in written curricula. The universities have been extremely forthright in their sharing of needs and challenges and it is a delight to work with educators who want to get it right to improve the learning for their students. I have tremendous respect for these Asian universities and their endless desire to improve their educational offerings - not just chase the almighty 'research and publish' mindset.
I am eager to continue this critical work in the line of mapping at the university levels. This is where our future teachers, doctors, environmentalists and citizens are trained after all....
