AAMC Building Better Curriculum Webinar - July 14

Visualizing performance data to support competency-based progression in a medical school curriculum.

In this session, the speakers will provide an in-depth review of a curricular management software platform with a dashboarding interface that allows students, faculty, and assessors to track the completion of assessments and attainment of competency. An overview of the competency-based Shared Discovery Curriculum and the educational decision making that underpins course grading and the dashboard will be provided for context.

Time will be reserved at the end of the presentation for questions and conversation.
