Map your learning objectives and manage the structure of your curriculumREQUEST A DEMO
Compared to a standard four-year degree program, the curriculum of a medical education program is a different beast. Stakeholders from different departments and backgrounds all contribute different pieces to the curriculum, and those pieces are never confined to a specific module that each person controls. One45’s curriculum features are designed to solve these problems by giving you a single data repository with a collaborative interface and that ultimately provides one clear picture of your curriculum.
Our curriculum solution provides a central repository where users can see what’s being taught, where, and by whom. All of your learning experiences are captured in a single database that contains a hierarchical representation of your entire curriculum. You map every learning experience using standardized objectives and mapping lists, and you can see which instructional and assessment methods are used for which events, how each event’s objectives roll up to your program-level outcomes, and which topics are covered where.
Course directors, instructors, and administrators all play different roles in putting your curriculum together. You can decide who can make changes to which aspects of the curriculum using custom roles. For example, you may want course directors to map the events in their courses, but you may only want instructors to be able to modify the objectives of the events they teach. If you want to tightly control your curriculum data, you can lock down access to just your administrative staff.
One of the most valuable aspects of a curriculum map is its ability to help students and faculty prepare for their important events. Students can search and navigate the curriculum map to find relevant content and teaching objectives for upcoming tests. Faculty can see which objectives they are responsible for teaching, and can collaborate with course directors through the curriculum roles.
Whether you are rolling out an entirely new curriculum, a longitudinal curriculum track, or a new content area, you can use our curriculum mapping tools to plan and map the structure of that initiative alongside your existing curriculum.
If a faculty member asked, “where have we taught diabetes this year?”, you are just a search away from narrowing down on the specific events and objectives that were taught around diabetes. Better yet, you will also have insight into upcoming events on diabetes to help your faculty member place her lecture in the right context.
Real curriculum management is a systematic discipline of analyzing curriculum data and making curriculum changes. This often happens in regular curriculum committee meetings. Our export tools and gap analysis reports will prepare you for your curriculum committee meetings with detailed reports on assessment coverage, teaching types, and program objective traceability.
Without central oversight over your curriculum, you run the risk of a black mark on your next accreditation. Schools are increasingly held accountable for problems resulting from a lack of centralization and standardization across their curricula. Without one central curriculum database in place, your program is at risk when it comes to accreditation. One45 stores all your data in one place so you can show your accreditors how everything fits together.
