Using Curriculum Mapping Data to Evaluate by Cohort: Longitudinal, Vertical, Horizontal, and Cross-Section Analysis (Building Better Curriculum) - August 11, 2021

The presentation will describe how to create a curriculum map that not only allows monitoring of the curriculum in each academic year but also helps to evaluate and compare the experiences of cohorts of students.  The challenges of the build will be described along with how they were overcome.  The audience will be shown how to use a curriculum map for continuous quality improvement in the same way hospitals use a patient data set.
