The Longitudinal Program in Curriculum Development is a 10-month longitudinal program that involves learning curriculum development and evaluation through didactics, discussions, and a mentored curriculum development project. The program is taught and projects are mentored by international experts in curriculum development and evaluation, who have published the widely used text on the subject: Curriculum Development for Medical Education: A Six-Step Approach. By the end of the program, participants will have designed, piloted, and formulated plans for the implementation of a curriculum in medical education relevant to the needs of their own institution as well as to their own professional careers.
The program includes:
- Workshops on the six steps of curriculum development and related topics, such as writing for publication and disseminating one’s work; searching the literature and internet for educational articles and resources, finding and applying for funding support, obtaining IRB approval, designing surveys, using simulation, and using information technology to support medical education
- A mentored curriculum development project, usually accomplished in teams of 2-5 participants
- Work-in-progress sessions with other teams wherein participants present and receive feedback on different stages of their work
- Written outlines and drafts related to each step
- Individual project team meetings with course facilitators to review progress and receive verbal and subsequent written feedback on each step of their project
- A presentation of participants’ work before an invited audience at the end of the year
- Submission of a paper on their project.
This activity is intended for scholarly educators in the fields of nursing, medicine, public health, psychology and laboratory research.
After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
- Describe the knowledge and apply the skills necessary to effectively design, implement, and evaluate a curriculum
- Design, pilot, and formulate plans for the implementation of a curriculum in medical education relevant to the needs of their learners and institution as well as to their own professional career(s)
