Online Submission, IAMURE: International Association of Multidisciplinary Research Journal v3 p292-301 Jan 2012
Curriculum is a crucial component of any educational process. Curriculum development and instructional management serve as effective tools for meeting the present and future needs of the local and national communities. In trying to strengthen the quality assurance system in Philippine higher education, institutions of higher learning were mandated to upgrade higher education curricular offerings to international standards. Anchored on the PMI framework, data were gathered through in-depth review of documents, interviews with program coordinators and on-site observation in selected schools offering Medical Technology program in U.S.A., Australia, Singapore, Japan, Thailand and Canada. The benchmarking results showed that there were major "plus" and "interesting" points that can be used as guide in the innovation of the existing Philippine Medical Technology program and can become the basis of enabling implementation activities: reform and improve curriculum structure, content, teaching- learning strategies and employ competency-based assessment process.
