Threshold concept theory is a linear framework through which various skills and disciplinary knowledge are acquired in an incremental pattern. Curriculum mapping integrates this theory into course-specific instruction by advising faculty about the sequence of the concepts that are taught, and the best timing of their placement in the curriculum. This creates authentic point-of-need learning opportunities, and enhances understanding of the fundamental elements that define the discipline.
Using INR3502 (International Organizations) at Florida State University as a case study, this presentation will highlight the steps for effective curriculum mapping at both the departmental and the course levels in political science.
