An institution that maintains a triple crown accreditation will incur ‘license’ fees of US$265K per five-year cycle plus even more annual, internal costs associated with administrators, unique quality assurance processes, data capture, collection, and processing. A ‘worst case’ example is Vanderbilt University with an annual estimate of 5K hours and $2.92M! These institutional costs, if visible, seldom calculate the time consumed on the part of the “worker bees” who would rather do their research and teaching. A key process cycle is documenting the curriculum - which in most tertiary institutions is fraught with difficulties, mainly because the actual implementation of the curriculum is more of a negotiation process involving peers, heads of departments, deans and administrators. This paper discusses an innovative method to map and monitor a curriculum to relieve the costs and stress for everyone involved.
