The Module Activity Planning with Indicative Timelines (MAPIT) templates are collaboratively designed tools to support flexible curriculum design. They support development teams by visualising the optimum amount for flexibility for their curriculum.


A rigid, constrained curriculum with few opportunities to develop digital capabilities is a risky strategy, particularly in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and future digital innovation.

A loose, unrestrained curriculum is unstable and fails to offer a quality student experience.
The aims of these tools are to support development teams to design-in the optimum amount of evidence-based flexibility and monitor the impact on the student experience.
