Guiding Principles for Maintaining and Sustaining a KM Curriculum

  • Courses are defined clearly and orthogonally to prevent overlap and ensure students receive a non-redundant education.

  • Courses are developed collaboratively between SLIS regular and adjunct faculty .

  • Model syllabi will be prepared by SLIS faculty working in consultation with domain experts and certifying professional organizations to ensure consistent quality.

  • The KM Curriculum will rely heavily on adjunct faculty, but adjunct faculty must have strong academic knowledge, relevant experience, and a proven teaching or training record.

  • SLIS and Instructional Design Team will work closely with new faculty to ensure a High Quality of Entry for each course.

  • Adjuncts should be selected based on their ability to contribute in multiple ways to at least one competency area.

  • Courses should be developed in a way that allows other faculty to teach them effectively.

  • Descriptions and syllabi will be prepared, but actual courses will not be developed until there is sufficient short- and long-term interest to justify the School’s investment (tied to recruitment and outreach)

  • Wherever possible, external funds and collaborative partnerships will be explored to support development of courses so that this work does not adversely impact SLIS curriculum

  • 1, 2 and 3 credit courses will be delivered to provide professionals the opportunity to build rich skill sets while achieving the required credits
