Curriculum management for the modern institution.

Workday Student Curriculum helps you create, manage, and maintain the courses or learning units your institution offers and help you create a schedule of offerings that are available for enrollment, complete with days, times, locations, instructor names, and other details.

  • Create and maintain course data for each department, including the unique iterations of each course with attributes and the necessary taxonomy for IPEDS reporting.
  • Designate and manage eligibility, requisites, preclusions, and restrictions for course offerings.
  • Allow parameters to control enrollment capacity in courses as well as the size of the wait list.
  • Configure flexible academic policies that can be defined at the institutional level or unique to a program of study, such as class standing, load status, and enrollment.
  • Make more informed decisions about adding or canceling course sections with real-time information on course inventory, offerings, and enrollment.

Recognize learning experiences.

Student learning experiences are evolving at a rapid pace. A modern student system requires an adaptable curriculum management foundation in order to support future learning models.

  • Create academic calendars that address both fixed and date-driven academic time periods.
  • Adopt a flexible framework to recognize a variety of student learning activities such as internships, orientation sessions, or study abroad.  
  • Recognize student accomplishments to represent performances or projects, dissertations, examinations, or other milestones.
  • Schedule course assessments that take place outside of course meeting times.

Support learning outcomes and competencies.

Institutions can identify learning competencies and outcomes to best represent the knowledge or skills acquired from a particular course, learning activity, or learning achievement.

  • Link competencies and learning outcomes to individual courses and allow competencies and learning outcomes to satisfy program requirements. 
  • Use learning outcomes to expose what a student will be able to do in a measurable way, where more than one outcome can be defined for a given competency.
  • Create a stronger bridge from education to occupation.
