Teaching Medical Students at a Distance: Using Distance Learning Benchmarks to Plan and Evaluate a Web-Enhanced Medical Student Curriculum
Olney, Cynthia A.; Chumley, Heidi; Parra, Juan M.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v15 n1-2 p59-86 2004
A team designing a Web-enhanced third-year medical education didactic curriculum based their course planning and evaluation activities on the Institute for Higher Education Policy's (2000) 24 benchmarks for online distance learning. The authors present the team's blueprint for planning and evaluating the Web-enhanced curriculum, which incorporates the benchmarks, the methods used to compare their program against the benchmarks, and the improvements they made to the Web-based materials based on evaluation findings. Their blueprint demonstrates a method that can yield thorough, useful planning and evaluation information for any online or Web-enhanced distance education course.
