Curriculum mapping is now an established practice in education, and over the last few years the tools available to assist in the process are growing in number and becoming more robust and effective. One of the keys to effective mapping is understanding the educational framework against which you are creating your map. Many schools are now struggling with how to implement new competency-based educational frameworks and how to make sense of our curriculum in light of these new approaches.
This session will help to illustrate some of the ways the Ilios curriculum management tool allows for the capture of both traditional curricular information (e.g. Topics, Learning Modalities, Keywords) and its interrelationship with competencies to provide a deeper understanding of how to:
- create a shared vocabulary and understanding of curriculum in the health professions community.
- Utilize an evidence-based approach to teaching and quality improvement.
- clearly and consistently identify curricular gaps and redundancies.
- provide flexibility in connecting emerging curricular models and adapting to the ever shifting landscape facing medical education.
