Curriculum Mapping Session at NN2 Conference
Outcomes and standards are essential to health science program curricula defining the what, when and how of student learning. Well-defined outcomes set the stage for student learning in curriculum programs and their courses. They state up front what students will learn or do upon exit of a learning experience and are often driven by accreditation or content standards. Not only does curriculum need to define what students will learn, but also highlight when standards or outcomes are assessed. It's the curriculum map that paints the picture for a program and keeps directors, faculty, and assessment coordinators informed. But as one can imagine, mapping can be a daunting effort whether updating multiple sets of accreditation standards, or drilling into course learning experiences to make decisions about where outcomes did not meet the success benchmarks, or updating and accessing documentation. WIDS makes curriculum mapping easy!
For many years, WIDS has worked closely with college health science program experts as curriculum consultants and trainers. WIDS will be at the 32nd Annual NN2 Conference this fall as both an exhibitor and a presenter showing how curriculum mapping can be made easy using our alignment model and curriculum management software system. Plan to add the WIDS and Western Technical College presentation below to your NN2 Conference calendar -- 9/26 at 1:30 pm.
