When designing a teaching lecture, workshop or institutional curriculum, how do you ensure success? A systematic approach to designing and evaluating curricula is the best offense to ensure the best possible curriculum outcomes. By definition, a curriculum is a circular process – meaning every curriculum must be tried, evaluated and revised. During this session participants will gain an understanding of how to look at curriculum design systematically; whether for a 1-hour lecture or a yearlong course. Participants should bring their own curricular ideas and be prepared to initiate some of the most critical steps of curriculum design (needs assessments, objectives, instructional strategies and evaluation).
