Synopsis

MEU9004 will introduce participants to the concepts, terminology and development
processes of curriculum design. The unit will focus upon the basic principles of curriculum development as they apply to the variety of organisational settings represented by the course participants. The unit is designed to be practical in its focus and will build upon the perspectives introduced in MEU9001-9003.

Objectives

On completion of this unit participants will be able to:

  1. differentiate between the curriculum perspectives currently evident within health
professional education;
  1. identify the main curriculum traditions in the education of health professionals;
  2. describe the influence on curriculum development of learning theories, the
characteristics of the individual health professions, regulatory requirements and general models of curriculum design;
  1. design a curriculum that specifies intended outcomes, evaluates actual outcomes, is consistent with regulatory requirements, specifies learner and teacher activities and is logically organised.
