Like CAFÉ’s other areas, Curriculum offers year-round programming as well as customized, just-on-time services.
Carolyn and Danny are always available for appointments, phone calls, or email consultations with individual faculty members and groups of any size. We are also happy to come to your space and offer sessions on any specially-requested, curriculum-related topics that would benefit your area.

The Curriculum team specializes in assisting with the design (or re-design) of courses and programs. Whether the goal is improved assessment tools for one course taught by one individual, increased alignment among a few related courses, updated program-level outcomes, or anything in-between, we can provide hands-on cooperative support, on-demand project management consultations, materials and resources, and more. If you have any questions related to changing, updating or otherwise re-thinking a course or program, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Your curriculum can be created or revised to ensure it captures diverse perspectives from many areas of difference, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, and others. Through a diversity course audit, we can help you identify where diversity already exists, which will help you identify potential gaps in your curriculum. From there, we can assist you in integrating forms of diversity that are meaningful for your course and program.
CAFÉ’s Curriculum Office has been hosting a Diversity and Difference Faculty Learning Community through which faculty members participate in and offer presentations, share perspectives, and discuss future directions. Each year, these meetings culminate in a Diversity Day, which celebrates faculty work and offers a workshop facilitated by a guest speaker.
The Curriculum team is interested in helping you integrate sustainability into your course(s) and program. Through collaboration with MacEwan’s Office of Sustainability, we offer sustainability-related programming, and the Curriculum team can also work with you to create or revise curriculum that focuses on sustainability issues within your discipline.
The Curriculum team is interested in helping you internationalize your curriculum at the course and/or program level(s). Through an examination of your existing curriculum, we can help you identify where internationalization already exists, which will help identify potential gaps in your curriculum. From there, we can assist you in creating or revising curriculum that focuses on international issues within your discipline.
