Practical Applications of Curriculum Development: Mapping Out the Process of Systematically Designing Educational Programs
Educational Development Workshop for nurse educators presented by the Office of Curriculum and Educational Development.
This workshop builds on the Introduction to Curriculum Development course by walking participants through the curriculum design process from start to finish. We break down each component and explain why it matters and how each piece relates to the larger whole. Participants will leave with a curriculum design template they can use as a guide for creating educationally sound workshops and programs on their own.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the relationship between objectives, educational
strategies, and assessment
2. Explain the difference between a goal and an objective
3. Identify educational strategies that promote active learning
4. Define the purposes of assessment and evaluation in education
Nursing Learning Outcome:
On completion of the activity, registered nurses will report increased confidence in describing strategies that promote active learning, the purpose of assessment and evaluation in education, and the difference between goals vs objectives and they will identify at least one new learning that they intend to apply to their practice, as evidenced by self-reported intent to change practice on the post activity evaluation tool.
