As a part of Institutional Effectiveness Assessment initiatives, GCNYC has launched an innovative project on Cross-Curricular Assessment (CCA).
The goal of Cross-Curricular Assessment research is to examine curricula for three academic programs at Glasgow Caledonian New York College: “International Fashion Marketing,” “Risk, Resilience and Integrity Management,” and “Impact-Focused Business and Investing.” Cross-Curricular Assessment examines the relational connections between courses within each program: both horizontal (within a term) and vertical (across terms). The overarching question of research is “How does the knowledge (content, methodologies, cognitive skills) of each course support knowledge development in other courses of each program.”
The ultimate goal of Cross-Curricular Assessment is to drive curriculum improvements. CCA will highlight strengths and weaknesses of curriculum as a holistic academic framework. The CCA will support us in alignment of teaching and learning experiences, so that faculty and students have a shared view of knowledge values and applications across all Curricular activities.
