Prudentia: A Medical School's Solution to Curriculum Mapping and Curriculum Management
Steketee, Carole
Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, v12 n4 Article 9 2015
During early accreditation visits by the Australian Medical Council (AMC), staff in the School of Medicine (SoM) were asked to demonstrate how and when AMC student outcome statements were being integrated into the MBBS course. As a result, the School Executive committed to developing a curriculum mapping system (CMS) that could systematically demonstrate alignment between course outcomes, the AMC outcomes as well as other curricula elements. This paper addresses the designing and developing of a useful electronic curriculum mapping system "Prudentia," a user-friendly application that has the potential to transform how staff understand and interact with curriculum as well as improve curriculum review and management practices. A formal evaluation is planned for 2015 to measure staff attitudes and satisfaction levels. It will also assess behavioural changes at the individual, team (including cross-team collaboration), and curriculum governance levels.
