Using the Atlas to Fill Curricular Gaps
… one way of Using the Atlas
Adding missing topics to existing courses or new offerings
After Using the Atlas to Detect Curricular Gaps and Overlaps, missing topics can be added to the curriculum by inserting them into existing required courses or by creating new courses or modules to be required of all students.
As an example, it could be argued that the required courses at Toronto’s MPP program do not currently include the following topics.
The Study of Analytic Methods for Public Management
Information and Technology Management
Public Financial Management
Human Resource Management
One can imagine ways to work some of these topics into existing required course syllabi and creating new courses or modules to handle the rest. Some could be offered in semi-compulsory professional development sessions.
