A key component of the curricular reform effort at IU is to enhance integration between the foundational and clinical sciences. In this hands-on workshop, Carol Nichols, PhD, Associate Professor of Cellular Biology and Anatomy at Georgia Regents University, will share approaches for incorporating innovative and active learning strategies within competency-based courses/curricula and for how the curricular reform process has affected faculty effort and student learning outcomes.
This workshop is of special interest to leaders and members of the Course Development Teams (CDT). Each team is asked to send members to the morning workshop. Additional consultative and problem-solving meetings with CDT leaders/members and Dr. Nichols will be scheduled on a first come-first served basis, in the afternoon.
