An instructional curriculum map (ICM) is an instructional design method developed by Gagné et al. (this needs verification) to plan the structure of a large learning module, i.e. a course.

Draft

Just roughly (for the moment):

Course
  • At course general we define general objectives to reach in terms of a prior needs analysis
  • A course is divided into units
Unit
  • Each unit is firstly designed in terms of a rather general goal to attain (enabling objective)
  • Then, activities (teacher, learner) are defined in terms of subgoals to reach. Some also may rely on other input (e.g. previous knowledge, other courses)
  • Each subgoal becomes a sub-unit if necessary
  • For sub-unit design, see methods like nine events of instruction
