Knowledge Area Module (KAM)

Complete KAM curriculum and resources can be found here. A KAM is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your knowledge about a topic that interests you and other scholar practitioners. We recommend beginning with our Walden-approved templates. Save to your desktop and begin work directly in a template that has been formatted for you from start to finish. The Center for Research Quality has many LA and KAM documents available as well.
