Pathway Pillar I


Clarify the Path

(Create clear curricular pathways)

The Guided Pathways design process begins by keeping program outcomes in mind and then creating or redesigning the courses to meet program outcomes. It begins by faculty visualizing the end goal and creating the shortest path of courses the student will take from their first day of attendance to their graduation. Learning outcomes are then developed to prepare students for further education or employment in fields relevant to the college's service area.
