On Being a Cohort Leader: Curriculum Integration, Program Coherence, and Shared Responsibility
Browne-Ferrigno, Tricia; Muth, Rodney
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v16 p77-95 Fall 2004
Cohorts are increasingly popular management tools for recruiting students into professional education programs, for organizing their learning experiences, for promoting performance-based outcomes, and for developing and using innovative teaching-learning practices. This article explores the role of a cohort leader in ensuring that the curriculum is integrated throughout the life of the cohort, that program coherence is developed and maintained, and that students, faculty, and the program assume appropriate responsibilities for learning. Reviews of literature about learning in cohorts and designing programs serve as the basis for defining three cohort leader responsibilities: curriculum integration, program coherence, and shared responsibility. The article closes with recommendations from the authors who are experienced cohort instructors and cohort leaders.
