(SNOWBIRD) Best Practices for Using Your Curriculum Management System

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Abstract Body: For nearly two decades, schools have been developing systems for managing curriculum content and / or contracting with vendors for curriculum management. Schools invest time, finances, energy, committee time, and human resources in these Curriculum Management Systems. This investment should result in more informed curriculum administrators, committees, faculty, staff, and students using reports that inform curriculum decisions, continuous quality improvement and benchmarking efforts; and tracking of competencies, key terminology, and themes / special emphases. There are multiple methods for leveraging the power of a well-populated curriculum management system. This session will provide examples from three medical schools regarding best practices for collecting and entering data, using curriculum management system reports to inform curriculum committees, and conducting continuous quality improvement using curriculum management systems. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their best practices and learn from others in small group discussions. The session will conclude with a short overview of how local curriculum management system data can be benchmarked with national curriculum data. Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: *Review features of Curriculum Management Systems *Explain the types of data that are important to the success of a Curriculum Management System *Discuss how Curriculum Management Systems can support curriculum committee discussions, administrative decisions, and student preparation for the curriculum *Share opportunities and challenges from other medical schools *Demonstrate how local curriculum data can be benchmarked with national data Schedule: Welcome and Introduction of Presenters and Topic: 5 minutes Moderated panel presentation of Curriculum Management System Best Practices: 8 Minutes each (24 minutes) Group Discussion & Brainstorming: 45 minutes *What are Best Practices for the types of data that should be collected? *What are Best Practices for collecting curriculum data? *What are Best Practices for using curriculum data to support Curriculum Committees, Administrators, Faculty, Students, and Staff? *What are Best Practices for using curriculum data to support benchmarking, CQI, curriculum review/renewal, and accreditation? *What features are necessary in a Curriculum Management System to support these Best Practices?
