Comparing New and Old
In order to continue providing students with an innovative learning experience, the UWSOD decided to completely overhaul their curriculum, but they did not have an easy or comprehensive way of comparing old and new curricula.
With eCurriculum, they are now able to see what was covered in the past and how it is being addressed in the new courses. Now they can identify any gaps in their curriculum, to make sure they’re covering all the standards needed for accreditation.
As the University of Washington School of Dentistry looks to the future, their eMedley implementation will help them achieve the goals of providing their students an interprofessional and interdisciplinary education. By smoothing out the complexity of scheduling, school administrators are now free to focus on innovation and analysis of reporting.
In eCurriculum, users can go back through the years to see what worked and where improvements had been made. They have the ability to track exactly what the students are learning alongside the nationally set standards to keep students and instructors on track for success.
Custom Standards Tracking
With eCurriculum, UWSOD was able to center its curriculum and competencies around the ADA’s Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) Standards. The application can tie any curriculum to any set of standards, competencies or objectives (ie. PCRS, ARC-PA, ACOTE), allowing users to easily track many different types of standards at once.
Over time, UW will be able to use eCurriculum to see how changes to their courses affect student performance and figure out the best chronology for their topics and competencies.
