Knowledge Area Modules (KAM)

The Knowledge Area Module (KAM) allows students to investigate a body of knowledge by critically examining its theoretical foundations and evaluating current research, and to use this work to develop solutions to real-world problems. Before starting work on a KAM, students write a Learning Agreement that defines their learning and research objectives for that KAM. The Learning Agreement must be reviewed, evaluated, and approved by the instructor who is going to serve as an assessor of the student’s work in that KAM. Completing the corresponding KAM demonstration or comprehensive paper is an iterative process that requires students to consult regularly with their assessors; do extensive reading; perform critical analysis and synthesis; design or conduct related projects; and revise, perhaps more than once, written drafts to produce scholarly products. The KAM demonstration shows students’ mastery of the requisite body of knowledge and achievement of the objectives set forth in their approved Learning Agreements.
