What is the Curriculum Alignment Tool?

The Curriculum Alignment Tool (CAT) is available for departments working with the GMC on curriculum renewal. The CAT is one approach for collecting data about the contributions of your program's individual courses to overall program outcomes. The contributions of individual courses can be instructional methods/strategies, learning contexts/experiences, or assessments, any of which can be inventoried in the CAT. Sample data visualizations are shown below. For more information, please contact CAT_gmcte@usask.ca.
