    2010-09-01

    Full Text Available In Colombia, the Superior Education is going through a transformation process. These changes must be in coherence with the formulation of flexible policies among the diverse components of the curriculum and with the need for new forms of working and producing knowledge. The curricular renovation must ref lect an educational quality compromise and contribute to generate human development with high social impact. This article presents a proposal for Curricular Renovation, elaborated by faculty and students of the Phonoaudiology Program of the University of Cauca. This document contains aspects related to the pedagogic model, didactics, faculty-student relation, systems of evaluation and plan of studies. Furthermore, in this document the bases for the Route of Curricular Renovation are presented, consisting of the following phases: background, diagnosis and operational plan. These should facilitate the academic integration for adjusting the curricular processes to the needs of the academic program in a local, national and international context.

  4. Planning Curricular Proposals on Sound and Music with Prospective Secondary-School Teachers

    CERN Document Server

    Bisesi, Erica

    2008-01-01

    Sound is a preferred context to build foundations on wave phenomena, one of the most important disciplinary referents in physics. It is also one of the best-set frameworks to achieve transversality, overcoming scholastic level and activating emotional aspects which are naturally connected with every day life, as well as with music and perception. Looking at sound and music by a transversal perspective - a border-line approach between science and art, is the adopted statement for a teaching proposal using meta-cognition as a strategy in scientific education. This work analyzes curricular proposals on musical acoustics, planned by prospective secondary-school teachers in the framework of a Formative Intervention Module answering the expectation of making more effective teaching scientific subjects by improving creative capabilities, as well as leading to build logical and scientific categorizations able to consciously discipline artistic activity in music students. With this aim, a particular emphasis is given ...

  5. A importância do conhecimento escolar em propostas curriculares alternativas The importance of school knowledge for alternative curricular proposals

    Full Text Available O artigo focaliza um processo de construção curricular em uma escola da rede municipal de Belo Horizonte, no qual vigora a proposta oficial da ESCOLA PLURAL. Destaca as dificuldades vividas pelo corpo docente da escola e desenvolve o argumento de que propostas curriculares inovadoras podem criar um espaço discursivo no qual se segregam as crianças das camadas populares, reduzindo suas possibilidades de autonomia na sociedade. Com base nas concepções de política de Stephen Ball e Jenny Ozga, analisam-se os textos políticos da Escola Plural e de uma escola da rede municipal. Verificou-se a complexa relação entre documentos oficiais e experiências locais, bem como a necessidade de se afirmar a importância do conhecimento escolar no currículo. Argumenta-se que a supervalorização do aluno e de suas experiências culturais, em associação com a secundarização do conhecimento escolar, pode criar um espaço em que a criança seja confinada e jamais vista como normal.The paper focuses on a process of curriculum construction which was developed in a school from the Belo Horizonte educational system. The school is organized according to the official curricular proposal entitled PLURAL SCHOOL. It emphasizes the difficulties which were faced by the academic staff of the school and argues that innovative curricular proposals may create a space in which children from working class are segregated and have their possibilities of autonomy in society reduced. Drawing on the conceptions of politics by Stephen Ball and Jenny Ozga, the political texts, written on the level of the Plural School proposal and on the level of the school, are analyzed. The complex relations among official documents and local experiences are emphasized. The importance of school knowledge is stressed. It is argued that the overvaluation of the students and their cultural experiences and the undervaluation of school knowledge can create a space in which children are

Reference is made to the importance of an appropriately developed graduate's profile as a theoretical-pedagogical and socio-critical foundation.

  8. Health in curricular proposals for the teaching of physical education in the Brazilian Northeast: what to teach?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andréa Carla de Paiva

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available Parallel to the discussion of conceptual issues regarding health, some pedagogical proposals and curricular conceptions were developed in Physical Education in Brazil in the 80’s, which represented a breakthrough in the academic field. Meanwhile, a detachment of most of the proposals, regarding health as a teaching subject in school, came over. So, we ask: nowadays would the state curriculum proposals indicating health as a theme for Physical Education? Under what health perspective would be grounded these documents? How has this theme been translated to Physical Education lessons? To seek for answers, we conducted a survey in the curriculum proposals for Physical Education in northeast of Brazil. We use the thematic content analysis and realized that health is a prime topic in some proposals at the same level of corporal practices, being structured by themes, teaching content and content underlying other topics of corporal practices. We noted that both in intentions and proposals, health revolves predominantly around the healthy habits in anatomical physiological perspective, as, paradoxically, intentions and proposals share the concept of health in a public health perspective.

    Malaria research is typically conducted in developing countries in areas of endemic disease. This raises specific ethical issues, including those related to local cultural concepts of health and disease, the educational background of study subjects, and principles of justice at the community and country level. Research Ethics Committees (RECs) are responsible for regulating the ethical conduct of research, but questions have been raised whether RECs facilitate or impede research, and about the quality of REC review itself. This study examines the review process for malaria research proposals submitted to the Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Tropical Medicine at Mahidol University, Thailand. Proposals for all studies submitted for review from January 2010 to December 2014 were included. Individual REC members' reviewing forms were evaluated. Ethical issues (e.g., scientific merit, risk-benefit, sample size, or informed-consent) raised in the forms were counted and analysed according to characteristics, including study classification/design, use of specimens, study site, and study population. All 114 proposals submitted during the study period were analysed, comprising biomedical studies (17 %), drug trials (13 %), laboratory studies (24 %) and epidemiological studies (46 %). They included multi-site (13 %) and international studies (4 %), and those involving minority populations (28 %), children (17 %) and pregnant women (7 %). Drug trials had the highest proportion of questions raised for most ethical issues, while issues concerning privacy and confidentiality tended to be highest for laboratory and epidemiology studies. Clarifications on ethical issues were requested by the ethics committee more for proposals involving new specimen collection. Studies involving stored data and specimens tended to attract more issues around privacy and confidentiality. Proposals involving minority populations were more likely to raise issues than those that did not

A pesquisa foi realizada com uma turma de oitava série do Ensino Fundamental, na disciplina de ciências. A participação de um professor pesquisador, capaz de realizar a interlocução entre teoria e prática, e o diálogo entre professora e alunos tornaram-se elementos determinantes para a estruturação do projeto curricular, buscando a abordagem de conceitos científicos ao mesmo tempo em que necessidades e interesses do grupo em estudo pudessem ser debatidos. A interação em sala de aula e as produções dos alunos, a partir das estratégias utilizadas, foram componentes de análise e discussão para direcionar o desenvolvimento da proposta, e modificaram o comportamento e os hábitos dos sujeitos envolvidos no processo.This paper presents the planning and development of a curricular project built as a process, with the intention of organizing the methodological strategies used, like problem solving, and to fulfill a pedagogic proposal in a constructivist approach. The research was carried out with an eighth year Elementary Education science class. The participation of a teacher-researcher capable of making the interlocution between theory and practice, and the dialogue between teacher and students, turned out to be determining elements to structure the curricular project, searching for a scientific concepts' approach, at the same time that the needs and interests of the group could be discussed. The classroom interaction and the students' productions, from the strategies used, were analysis and discussion components in order to guide the proposal development, and they modified the behavior and habits of the subjects engaged in the process.

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available The 21st century sets out new challenges to universities and university professors,who have to debate on the quality of education, the requirements on the teaching and learning, and the proposed curricula for the professional and disciplinary training in the university. In this context, research groups from four Colombian universities have developed a project in order to articulate therelationshipswithin the training of university professors, through the research of their practices and processes of curricular innovation. With such a goal the conformation of pedagogical collectives is promoted, and a reflective process about their pedagogical styles is generated (Callejas&,Corredor, 2002. Action research as a methodology and strategy of professional evelopment is proposed (McKernan, 1999, observation-reflection, planning-action, and then back to observation-reflection.Video recordings of classes, individual and group observation of the recordings, and individual and group interviews that favor reflection processes about the dimensions of the pedagogical style are performed. The analysis of the practice is guided by a complex, investigative and comprehensive vision of the curriculum that articulates theory and practice. The critical recognition that teachers do about their own pedagogical style favors the evolution of their ideas and guides them to start a process of curricular innovation.

  19. Ethical issues of informed consent in malaria research proposals submitted to a research ethics committee in Thailand: a retrospective document review.

    The informed-consent process should be one of meaningful information exchange between researchers and study participants. One of the responsibilities of research ethics committees is to oversee appropriate informed consent. The committee must consider various matters before deciding whether the process is appropriate, including the adequacy and completeness of the written information provided to study participants, and the process of obtaining informed consent. This study aimed to identify, quantitatively and qualitatively, consent-related issues in different types of malaria proposals submitted to the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Ethics Committee. This study reviewed proposal documentation submitted to two panels of the Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, from 2011 to 2015. The documentation included proposals, notifications to researchers of review outcomes and ethical issues of concern to committee members. Each element of the informed-consent process was identified and analyzed by study classification, design, and specimen use, including whether the study involved a vulnerable population. Summative content analysis was used to analyze patterns of common issues raised in reviews. Of the 112 proposals reviewed, 63 required an informed consent process. All researchers proposed communicating with their study participants; however, about two-thirds needed to improve their explanations of study procedures (study activities and specimen/data-collection process) to participants. About 40% of the proposals attracted comments on informed-consent process elements--risk and discomfort, vulnerable status, and compensation. Studies that planned to collect or use new/linked specimens raised more issues around informed consent than studies using linked data/records. Studies that involved vulnerable populations raised more issues than those that did not. The committee usually asked researchers to clarify, elaborate, revise, or paraphrase

    1995-09-01

    The DOE Hydrogen Program needs to develop criteria as part of a systematic evaluation process for proposal identification, evaluation and selection. The H Scan component of this process provides a framework in which a project proposer can fully describe their candidate technology system and its components. The H Scan complements traditional methods of capturing cost and technical information. It consists of a special set of survey forms designed to elicit information so expert reviewers can assess the proposal relative to DOE specified selection criteria. The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) component of the decision process assembles the management defined evaluation and selection criteria into a coherent multi-level decision construct by which projects can be evaluated in pair-wise comparisons. The AHP model will reflect management`s objectives and it will assist in the ranking of individual projects based on the extent to which each contributes to management`s objectives. This paper contains a detailed description of the products and activities associated with the planning and evaluation process: The objectives or criteria; the H Scan; and The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP).

  5. Cultivating curricular reform.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Guze, P A

    1995-11-01

    Since the 1960s there has been pressure to reform medical education in a more humanistic direction. One reason this has been difficult is that most medical schools have been forced to maintain themselves on resources allocated to support research and the technology of specialized tertiary care. Nevertheless, many people believe that medical education can still change because of changes taking place outside the sciences, such as a redefinition of the meaning of health and the need to provide better health care to the U.S. population at a lower cost. Taking this optimistic view will help strengthen reformers' resolve for curricular change and the incorporation of important areas such as family violence into medical students' education. There are numerous barriers to curricular change. Yet there are useful principles that can guide reform efforts, such as having an explicit rationale for the desired change, focusing on educational goals rather than on resources for their implementation, recruiting support from the departmental and school leadership, anticipating negative reactions, and recognizing the need for negotiation. There are also principles to foster successful implementation, the most important of which is to have everyone involved agree on the goals of the new program and participate in the process. The way to increase an emphasis on family violence issues is to find areas in the curriculum where these issues can be integrated with current teaching. Finally, a medical school curriculum on family violence does not need to be all-inclusive, but instead should prepare a good foundation so that students can expand their knowledge and skills during residency training and medical practice.

  9. Veterinary Curricula Today: Curricular Management and Renewal at AAVMC Member Institutions.

    Lane, India F; Root Kustritz, Margaret V; Schoenfeld-Tacher, Regina M

    2017-01-01

    Renewing a veterinary curriculum is challenging work and its impact is difficult to measure. Academic leaders are charged with regular review and updating of their curricula, but have few resources available to guide their efforts. Due to the paucity of published veterinary reports, most turn to colleagues at other veterinary schools for insider advice, while a few undertake the task of adapting information from the educational literature to suit the needs of the veterinary profession. In response to this paucity, we proposed a theme issue on curricular renewal and surveyed academic leaders regarding curricular challenges and major renewal efforts underway. We compiled the results of this survey (with respondents from 38 veterinary colleges) as well as publicly available information to create a digest of curricular activities at AAVMC member institutions. This introductory article summarizes the key survey findings, describes the methods used to create the curricular digest, and presents information about key aspects of selected programs. Our overarching research questions were as follows: (1) What was the extent and nature of curricular change at AAVMC-accredited veterinary colleges over the past 5 years? and (2) How are curricula and curricular changes managed at AAVMC accredited veterinary colleges? The appended curricular digests provide selected details of current DVM curricula at participating institutions. Additional articles in this issue report on institutional change efforts in more detail. It is our hope that this issue will help to pave the way for future curricular development, research, and peer-to-peer collaboration.

  10. Curricular Integration in Pharmacy Education

    Pearson, Marion L.; Hubball, Harry T.

    2012-01-01

    This article reviews the concepts of curricular integration and integrative learning. These concepts have reemerged in contemporary higher education reforms and are crucial in pharmacy programs where students are expected to acquire the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for competent practice in a complex environment. Enhancing integration requires negotiating obstacles, including institutional traditions of disciplinary structures and disciplinary differences in understandings of knowledge and approaches to teaching and learning; investing the time and effort to design and implement integrated curricula; and using learning-centered pedagogical strategies. Evidence supporting the value of such efforts is not compelling, as much because of insufficient research as lackluster findings. Future avenues of scholarly inquiry are suggested to evaluate curricular integration, distinguishing between the curriculum espoused by planners, the curriculum enacted by instructors, and the curriculum experienced by students.

    Full Text Available Developing learners’ ability to self-regulate their own learning has been an ideal sought after by researchers and practitioners alike. Over the past 40 years a plethora of educational psychology research on self-regulated learning (SRL has flooded the literature. In this article I attempt to consolidate key theories from this literature base and propose a 6-point strategy to CREATE a culture of SRL. I will argue that instructors must communicate proximal and long-term goals that have been negotiated by a community of learners, substantially reward all positive aspects of the learning process, judge and reward the learning process by assigning elaborative learning assessments, realistically attribute success and failure to appropriate processes, and tune ineffective strategies and goals to allow the curriculum to evolve in accordance with learner difficulty and success.Enseigner aux apprenants la capacité d’autoréguler leur propre apprentissage est un idéal que poursuivent les chercheurs et les praticiens. Au cours des quarante dernières années, il y a eu surabondance d’études sur l’autorégulation de l’apprentissage dans la littérature sur la psychologie de l’éducation. Dans cet article, l’auteur tente de regrouper les principales théories tirées de cette documentation et de proposer une stratégie composée de six éléments contribuant à la création d’une culture de l’autorégulation. Il soutient que les enseignants doivent communiquer les objectifs à court et à long terme convenus par les apprenants, reconnaître de façon marquée tous aspects positifs du processus d’apprentissage, évaluer et reconnaître ce processus en donnant des travaux élaborés afin de mesurer l’apprentissage, attribuer de façon réaliste les succès et les échecs aux processus appropriés et adapter les stratégies et buts inefficaces afin de permettre l’évolution du curriculum en tenant compte des difficultés et des r

    Full Text Available The organization of the inclusive education is a slow and complex process, which has the necessity of investments in supports for all the scholar team. Aiming at spreading one of the actions carried out for the promotion of the inclusive educational practices in a municipal education system in a western city in the state of São Paulo, this paperwork has the objective of presenting an elaborated manual of orientations for the implementation of the individual curricular adaptations (ACIs for students who demand special educational necessities.(NEEs. The material was constituted on the basis of three data sets: 1 tabulation of the evaluations of the curricular adaptations already made; 2 the literature review; 3 analysis of the themes which have emerged during case discussion meetings mediated by the researchers with teachers from the Specialized Pedagogical Support Service (SAPE, with teachers and administrators from the common education system and the technical-pedagogical team. The final version of the manual contemplates the theoretical-operational aspects about the themes: flexibility and curricular adequation, inclusive education, definitions of NEEs, how SAPE works; and it finishes with a model proposal of ACI. It is expected that the spreading of this material can subside new curricular propositions for students with deficiency that are very distant from the academic level expected for the current scholar year.

    Clark, Douglas Burton

    literature address the debate over student knowledge structure coherence. In particular, this work compares conceptual change perspectives characterizing student understanding as categorical and theory-like with conceptual change perspectives characterizing student knowledge as repertoires of independent ideas that students cue, apply, and connect according to context. More broadly, this work demonstrates the importance of curricular depth in supporting student knowledge integration. Analysis and application of these results culminate in the proposal and testing of a concrete strategy to increase such curricular support for students in our schools.

  16. Praxis educativa ecopacifista de enriquecimiento curricular: Conceptuacion, diseno y divulgacion

    Science.gov (United States)

    Osorio, Carlos Agustin Muniz

    A general consensus exists that the present worldwide state of the natural environment is in crisis. Tied to this crisis, the social dimension presents a discouraging picture in aspects like violence and poverty. The predominant neoliberal economic system---ecocidal and genocidal---just as the production system that sustains it, affects this crisis. Puerto Rico, in its political and economic relationship with the United States of America, is not exempt of this situation. Education arises as an alternative to transform this reality. Science education has the potential to address these socio-environmental problems in a creative way. From a scientific educational framework, we conceptualized, designed and disseminated diverse approaches and tools that integrate socio-ecological and environmental aspects, as well as issues related to violence, conflict and peace. The central research questions were: At present, what are some of the main characteristics of the social-ecological and environmental global and local (glocal) issues and what relation do they have with formal education?; What is the ethical responsibility of science education when, facing social-ecological and environmental situations and issues concerning peace?; What educational foundations justify the "Praxis Educativa Ecopacifista de Enriquecimiento Curricular" as an alternative to the situations and issues considered?; What didactic tools do we propose?; What curricular design and revision processes do we propose? What dissemination processes do we propose? The nature of our methodology is qualitative and is centered around curricular design. It includes a research-theoretical dimension, a practical-research dimension, and systematizing of learning elements. We emphasize the conceptualization of the theoretical-philosophical and methodological dimensions of the ecopacifist approach and its fundamental principles. We highlight the praxis, integrating creativity, intelligence and talent development

    The 5th International Conference on Polar and Alpine Microbiology (PAM5) was held in Big Sky, Montana (USA) from 8-12 September 2013. This meeting is a continuation of the highly successful meetings previously held in Rovaniemi, Finland (2004), Innsbruck, Austria (2006), Banff, Canada (2008) and Ljubljana, Slovenia (2011), which brought together leading international researchers and students in this field. The objectives of the Big Sky meeting were to bring together scientists, students and professionals to discuss all aspects of cold-adapted microorganisms and the roles they play in polar and alpine environments, to understand the role of these organisms in our search for life on other icy worlds, to address recent developments, and to exchange ideas and experiences on an international scale. The conference provided a multi-disciplinary forum to explore emerging areas in the field and as always, will have a wealth of opportunities for the exchange of ideas and building of collaborations. Funds were requested to help defray registration fees and travel costs of 13 early career scientists. Distribution of the funds were based on the quality of the abstracts submitted.

Destinada a crianças de 3 a 5 anos, os jardins-de-infância oficiais definem uma proposta pedagógica em torno do brincar, como forma de levar a criança a conhecer seu ambiente, a socializar-se, a aprender a linguagem, a expressar-se e a criar. Em virtude da predominância do atendimento particular no campo da educação infantil e a pouca participação do governo, o brincar ocupa pouco espaço nas escolas infantis.Japanese educational politics in the nineties, influenced by globalization and internationalization, are restructuring the official pre-schools. Designed for children of 3 to 5 years, the official pre-schools define a pedagogical proposal about play, as a way to conduct the child to know his environment, to make himself sociable and creative. Due to the predominance of schools in the field of child education and weak government participation, private play represents a small role in pre-school education.

    Curricular transformation is complex and involves many interrelated and influential factors. The idiosyncratic nature of the time-frame in which curricular change takes place makes it difficult to study these factors systematically. In 2002, the Brazilian government established the Programme of Incentives for Curricular Changes in Medical Schools (PROMED). Nineteen schools participated in the programme and were given resources to finance curricular reforms in an effort to align their course structures with the tenets of the government proposal. This study analyses reforms in coursework among the schools in this cohort in an effort to better understand the impact of such incentive programmes and factors that might influence the degree of impact across institutions. We compared data on the schools before and after their participation in PROMED. To facilitate comparison, we used a scheme of axes and vectors to classify the schools according to the profundity of the curricular changes, ranging from the most conservative to the most innovative. The data used for the classification were obtained through document analysis, interviews and focus group discussions. Different trends were observed for each axis. Important changes were noticed in the pedagogic approach axis, particularly in terms of pedagogic changes, which called for the adoption of active teaching and learning methods. The practice scenarios axis also underwent considerable changes, specifically in terms of primary health care. The vector related to production of knowledge pertaining to health system needs showed fewer changes; none of the schools reached stage 3 (effective fulfilment of an educational innovation). The PROMED initiative provided considerable support for implementing and consolidating curricular reforms that placed greater emphasis on the needs of society and the health care system. The different trends observed revealed the complexity behind curricular transformation and highlighted the need

This paper presents a methodology for progressive improvement of such instruments to evaluate the suitability of mathematical instruction processes based on the analysis of curricular orientations. Analysis units are classifi ed according to the facets and components proposed by the Didactic Suitability Theory to identify norms and suitability indicators,which are compared with the system proposed by this theory, in order to point out agreements and complementarities. This methodology is exemplified through its application to the principles and standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM in the statistics content area at the level K-8.

Among the qualities inherent to this professional is the ability to anticipate the possible economic and financial relevant contradictions for an organization in any specific situation, as well as its readiness to present and defend routes proposed to facilitate its solution with a solid basis of alignment with organizational goals and current and future assessment of the possible outcomes in different scenarios. Having a profile that articulates with the structuring of the curriculum, programs of subjects and social requirements to the Economist on regional, national and international context is a valid purpose justifying the curriculum development in order to achieve a relevant training process, to define the profile of specific, basic and transversal skills that characterize the performance of the Economist.KEYWORDS: curricular improvement; evaluation; competences

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: La enseñanza en la diversidad requiere ante todo de una innovación curricular que apueste por un proceso y contexto educativo que se adapte al individuo. Introducir en la enseñanza los intereses provocados de la propuesta de los ejes transversales no significa desplazar las materias curriculares, sino diseñar los objetivos y contenidos propios de las áreas curriculares para que puedan adquirirse y desarrollarse desde la transversalidad, permitiendo así un mayor acercamiento y contextualización con la realidades cada estudiante y con los conflictos y problemas del mundo contemporáneo y, a la vez dotándolos de un valor funcional inmediato respecto a la comprensión y posible transformación de esa realidad y de esos conflictos. En este sentido los aspectos que tratan de incorporarse no son algo añadido, pero si novedoso desde el momento en que se introduce una nueva perspectiva, y se evita el riesgo, a veces tan mencionado, de que la transversalidad aparezca sutilmente desdibujada. Los ejes transversales bajo este nuevo planteamiento implicarán una importante transformación de las áreas curriculares de acuerdo con las expectativas de los tiempos presentes y la adecuación a las posibilidades de comprensión del alumnado. Esto será así, si los enfoques transversales, que constituyen el centro de las actuales preocupaciones sociales de las áreas curriculares, se convierten en el núcleo en torno a los cuales gira la programación de las áreas curriculares, las cuales se convertirán entonces en los instrumentos necesarios para la consecución de las finalidades deseadas.ABSTRACT: The Education in the diversity requires of a curricular innovation that bet on a process and educational context that is adapted to the individual.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The relationship between physical activity and health status has been thoroughly investigated in several studies, while the relation between physical activity and socio-economic status (SES is less investigated. The aim of this study was to measure the extra-curricular physical activity of adolescents related to the socio-economic status (SES of their families. Methods The survey was carried out by submitting an anonymous questionnaire to junior high school students in the following Regions: Lazio, Abruzzo, Molise, Campania, Puglia, during the school year 2002–2003. Extra-curriculum physical activity was evaluated considering whether or not present and hours of activity weekly conducted. 2411 students agreed to participate in the study. Results Participants were 1121 males (46.5% and 1290 females (53.5%, aged between 11 and 17 years (median age: 12 years. 71.1% of the students reported to practice extra-curricular physical activity. Parents' educational levels and work activities play an important role in predicting students' physical activity, with the more remunerative activities and higher educational levels being more predictive. Conclusion The results confirm the relationship between adolescents' physical activity and their families' SES. In particular, a positive relationship between participation in extra-curricular physical activity and their families high SES was found. These data will be useful for school administrators and for politicians in order to reduce the gap between adolescents from the least and most disadvantaged families.

    presents some reflections and discussions, stemming from a qualitative investigation, about the importance of the role of curricular training in the practical preparation of the students. The subjects of this research are students who have finished the Teacher Training Course at the University of Paraíba Valley (UNIVAP. Based on the interpretation of different authors (LIMA, 2001; TARDIF, 2002; PIMENTA, 2001; GÓMEZ, 2000, we understand practice as praxis, since, in being permeated by a process of reflection, it can be constructed and reconstructed, with a view of transforming the school. Thus we see the practical learning considered to have been achieved during the training in the reports presented and in the students' discourse. We analyze the data collected, in the light of the theory studied on the practical and professional training of teachers. We identify the favorable and unfavorable aspects of practical curricular training from the space/time point of view, which is also intended to promote practical knowledge in teacher training. Finally, we propose new perspectives for the orientation and execution of practical curricular training of teachers, centered on the relevance of practical training and on the articulation of all the disciplines on the training course.

    When curricular materials are disseminated to new sites, there can be a tension between fidelity to the original intent of the developers and adaptation to local needs. In this case study we look at a lab activity that was initially developed for an introductory physics for the life sciences (IPLS) course at the University of Maryland, then implemented at George Mason University with significant adaptations. The goals of the two implementations were overlapping, but also differed in ways that are reflected in the two versions of the lab. We compare student lab report data from the two sites to examine the impacts of the adaptation on how students engaged with the lab.

    Yuan, Christina M; Prince, Lisa K; Oliver, James D; Abbott, Kevin C; Nee, Robert

    2015-07-01

    Beginning in the 2014-2015 training year, the US Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) required that nephrology Clinical Competency Committees assess fellows' progress toward 23 subcompetency "context nonspecific" internal medicine subspecialty milestones. Fellows' advancement toward the "ready for unsupervised practice" target milestone now is tracked in each of the 6 competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Professionalism, Interpersonal Communication Skills, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, and Systems-Based Practice. Nephrology program directors and subspecialty societies must define nephrology-specific "curricular milestones," mapped to the nonspecific ACGME milestones. Although the ACGME goal is to produce data that can discriminate between successful and underperforming training programs, the approach is at risk to produce biased, inaccurate, and unhelpful information. We map the ACGME internal medicine subspecialty milestones to our previously published nephrology-specific milestone schema and describe entrustable professional activities and other objective assessment tools that inform milestone decisions. Mapping our schema onto the ACGME subspecialty milestone reporting form allows comparison with the ACGME subspecialty milestones and the curricular milestones developed by the American Society of Nephrology Program Directors. Clinical Competency Committees may easily adapt and directly translate milestone decisions reached using our schema onto the ACGME internal medicine subspecialty competency milestone-reporting format.

  10. The Brazilian National Curricular Parameters for High School Science: an analysis taking into account the viewpoints of their developers

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Elio Carlos Ricardo

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available Competences, interdisciplinarity and contextualization became part of the discourse from the majority of educators, mainly after the issue of the Curricular Directives for High School Teaching (DCNEM and the National Curricular Parameters (PCN and PCN+ by the Brazilian Ministry of Education. Nevertheless, this does not imply that their practices are aligned with the proposals embodied in the documents. One of the reasons for it is the difficulty in understanding those notions and in their implementation in classrooms. The present work intends to clarify some of the main ideas contained in the PCN and PCN+, namely, the notion of competences, interdisciplinarity and contextualization, from the point of view of their authors, more specifically in the area of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and their Technologies. For this, semi-structured interviews were used. The thesis that there is a rupture between the DCNEM and the National Curricular Parameters, as far as educational, political and philosophical aspects are concerned, is also argued for.

    2003-12-01

    Training in research ethics is crucial for psychiatric investigators. Addressing ethical dimensions of human subjects research requires knowledge about the rules and norms governing research; sensitivity to ethical implications of actions; and skills in ethics problem solving. Investigators in training who are physicians have the additional challenge of developing identities as investigators that sometimes conflict with their identities as physicians. To propose a curriculum for psychiatric research ethics training. Review of literature on ethics education and presentation of a curricular approach to research ethics training for psychiatric investigators. Research ethics can be learned and should be taught. Involvement of active investigators in teaching research ethics is important. While core topics of psychiatric research ethics training have not yet been identified, there are available models from which to draw. Research ethics should be introduced early and integrated throughout the research training period. Lack of resources and institutional support can be obstacles to development of comprehensive research ethics curricula. Small-group, case-based discussion is best for teaching ethics problem-solving skills. Examples of teaching module ideas and a fully developed sample teaching module are presented. There is opportunity for creative models for teaching psychiatric research ethics. Work is needed to identify core topics, target pedagogical strategies to trainees at different levels, and develop evaluation methods.

  17. Questioning collectives and agencies: a commentary on curricular choices

    Science.gov (United States)

    Arnold, Jenny

    2015-06-01

    This commentary explores theoretical alternatives for viewing the problem identified by Volny Fages and Virginie Albe in their article entitled Social issues in nanoscience and nanotechnology Master's degrees: The socio-political stakes of curricular choices. An approach to social research is suggested that would render visible the associations maintaining the states of affairs depicted by Fages and Albe. In their research, Fages and Albe identified conceptions of the relationship between scientific endeavour and social concerns to be at the root of "choices" made by coordinators of Masters programs in nano science and technology in universities selected for their study. Albe and Fages, insiders in the sense that they take responsibility for a particular program within one such course, convey their belief that, "future scientists need to identify, accept and take on board the social responsibilities linked to their own practice of science, and to work collectively for a more democratic division of power regarding socio-technical choices". However, many of the Master's programs reviewed in their research were reported as providing limited opportunities for their students to critically engage with social aspects of scientific work. This commentary questions the notion of "choices" used in their research and proposes Actor-Network Theory as a theoretical framework open to the existence of various human and non-human agencies at work when a "choice" is made. The aim of the commentary is to further Fages and Albe's agenda by calling for understanding and ultimately a reassembling of the state of affairs in a way that would be acceptable to those invested.

  18. The Texas Experimental Tokamak: A plasma research facility. A proposal submitted to the Department of Energy in response to Program Notice 95-10: Innovations in toroidal magnetic confinement systems

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    NONE

    1995-06-12

    The Fusion Research Center (FRC) at the University Texas will operate the tokamak TEXT-U and its associated systems for experimental research in basic plasma physics. While the tokamak is not innovative, the research program, diagnostics and planned experiments are. The fusion community will reap the benefits of the success in completing the upgrades (auxiliary heating, divertor, diagnostics, wall conditioning), developing diverted discharges in both double and single null configurations, exploring improved confinement regimes including a limiter H-mode, and developing unique, critical turbulence diagnostics. With these new regimes, the authors are poised to perform the sort of turbulence and transport studies for which the TEXT group has distinguished itself and for which the upgrade was intended. TEXT-U is also a facility for collaborators to perform innovative experiments and develop diagnostics before transferring them to larger machines. The general philosophy is that the understanding of plasma physics must be part of any intelligent fusion program, and that basic experimental research is the most important part of any such program. The emphasis of the proposed research is to provide well-documented plasmas which will be used to suggest and evaluate theories, to explore control techniques, to develop advanced diagnostics and analysis techniques, and to extend current drive techniques. Up to 1 MW of electron cyclotron heating (ECH) will be used not only for heating but as a localized, perturbative tool. Areas of proposed research are: (1) core turbulence and transport; (2) edge turbulence and transport; (3) turbulence analysis; (4) improved confinement; (5) ECH physics; (6) Alfven wave current drive; and (7) diagnostic development.

    2014-01-01

    A comprehensive search of the literature published between 2001 and 2010 was performed to gain a greater understanding of curricular reform practices at Chinese medical schools. There were 10,948 studies published between 2001 and 2010 that were retrieved from the database. Following preliminary screening, 76 publications from 49 different medical schools were selected. Thirty-one publications regarding clinical medicine curricular reforms were analyzed further. Of the 76 studies, 53 described curricular reforms that were instituted in theoretical courses, 22 described curricular reforms that were instituted in experimental courses, and 1 described curricular reforms that were instituted in a clinical skills training course. Of the 31 clinical medicine publications, 2 described reforms that were implemented for 3-year program medical students, 12 described reforms that were implemented for 5-year program medical students, 6 described reforms that were implemented for 7-year program medical students, and 2 described reforms that were implemented for 8-year program medical students. Currently, the majority of medical schools in China use the discipline-based curriculum model. Thirteen studies described transition to an organ-system-based curriculum model, 1 study described transition to a problem-based curriculum model, and 3 studies described transition to a clinical presentation-based curriculum model. In 7 studies educators decided to retain the discipline-based curriculum model while integrating 1 or several new courses to remedy the weaker aspects of the traditional curriculum, in 7 studies educators decided to integrate the preclinical courses with the clinical courses by using the systemic-integrating curricular system that dilutes classical disciplines and integrates material based on organ systems, and in 2 studies educators limited reforms to clinical courses only. Eight studies discussed the implementation of a formative evaluation system, 4 studies

    Full Text Available The analysis of the curricular design theories shows that the concept of performance has not yet been sufficiently studied, this explains actual inconsistencies in the design methodologies that claim to be focused on professional activity. However, in practice they are focusing professional problems instead, or simply copying other universities curricula without considering the particular country stage of development. Taking Chemical engineers as a referent point, the authors devise a methodology of curricular design focused on professional activity leading to the comprehension of this particular engineers ‘performance. The findings result from the application of the functional structural systemic method.

Team goals were to improve skills in communication, data analysis, business/economics, team problem solving, and cultural competency. Curricular changes realized include communication skill activities embodied in science courses and faculty communication teaching skill seminars; self learning tools in data analysis, statistics and model building; a new course developed with assistance from 3M personnel focusing on topics directly related to technological industries; high performance team problem solving training/coaching for faculty; workshops for students and faculty relative to importance of cultural competencies in the workplace; and a new course focusing on culture, team problem solving and conflict resolution in the technical workplace. Process for developing and content of curricular changes will be reported. *Thanks to: NSF GOALI CHE-99010782

  1. Lessons from industry: one school's transformation toward "lean" curricular governance.

    2007-04-01

    As medical education grapples with organizational calls for centralized curricular oversight, programs may be compelled to respond by establishing highly vertical, stacked governance structures. Although these models offer discrete advantages over the horizontal, compartmentalized structures they are designed to replace, they pose new challenges to ensuring curricular quality and the educational innovations that drive the curricula. The authors describe a hybrid quality-assurance (QA) governance structure introduced in 2003 at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine (UKCOM) that ensures centralized curricular oversight of the educational product while allowing individualized creative control over the educational process. Based on a Lean production model, this approach draws on industry experiences that strategically separate institutional accountability (management) for a quality curriculum from the decision-making processes required to ensure it (production). In so doing, the authors acknowledge general similarities and key differences between overseeing the manufacture of a complex product versus the education of a physician-emphasizing the structured, sequential, and measurable nature of each process. Further, the authors briefly trace the emergence of quality approaches in manufacturing and discuss the philosophical changes that accompany transition to an institutional governance system that relies on vigorous, robust performance measures to offer continuous feedback on curricular quality.

    Bassel Nazha

    Full Text Available Early integration of research education into medical curricula is crucial for evidence-based practice. Yet, many medical students are graduating with no research experience due to the lack of such integration in their medical school programs. The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of a peer-organized, extra-curricular research methodology course on the attitudes of medical students towards research and future academic careers. Twenty one medical students who participated in a peer-organized research course were enrolled in three focus group discussions to explore their experiences, perceptions and attitudes towards research after the course. Discussions were conducted using a semi-structured interview guide, and were transcribed and thematically analyzed for major and minor themes identification. Our findings indicate that students' perceptions of research changed after the course from being difficult initially to becoming possible. Participants felt that their research skills and critical thinking were enhanced and that they would develop research proposals and abstracts successfully. Students praised the peer-assisted teaching approach as being successful in enhancing the learning environment and filling the curricular gap. In conclusion, peer-organized extra-curricular research courses may be a useful option to promote research interest and skills of medical students when gaps in research education in medical curricula exist.

    Using the frameworks of transformational learning and situated learning theory, we developed a technology-enhanced professionalism curricular model to build a learning community aimed at promoting residents' self-reflection and self-awareness. The RAPR model had 4 components: (1) Recognize: elicit awareness; (2) Appreciate: question assumptions and take multiple perspectives; (3) Practice: try new/changed perspectives; and (4) Reflect: articulate implications of transformed views on future actions. The authors explored the acceptability and practicality of the RAPR model in teaching professionalism in a residency setting, including how residents and faculty perceive the model, how well residents carry out the curricular activities, and whether these activities support transformational learning. A convenience sample of 52 postgraduate years 1 through 3 internal medicine residents participated in the 10-hour curriculum over 4 weeks. A constructivist approach guided the thematic analysis of residents' written reflections, which were a required curricular task. A total of 94% (49 of 52) of residents participated in 2 implementation periods (January and March 2015). Findings suggested that RAPR has the potential to foster professionalism transformation in 3 domains: (1) attitudinal, with participants reporting they viewed professionalism in a more positive light and felt more empathetic toward patients; (2) behavioral, with residents indicating their ability to listen to patients increased; and (3) cognitive, with residents indicating the discussions improved their ability to reflect, and this helped them create meaning from experiences. Our findings suggest that RAPR offers an acceptable and practical strategy to teach professionalism to residents.

  16. Curricular adaptations: Case studies of two exemplary elementary science teachers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Harris, Mary Sadama

    This research sought to determine whether and how current local and national curricular mandates affect the science instruction of two exemplary Alabama elementary teachers. The study provides a description of the contextual backdrop of elementary teaching in Alabama and the curricular mandates resulting from federal legislation entitled The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 that have been enacted across the state of Alabama. This study centers on the evolution of reform initiatives that impact the teaching of science in elementary schools. These reforms focus on student achievement, teacher accountability, subject matter testing, and federal legislation. The emphasis on accountability has created situations where teachers are, in any given year, faced with multiple program innovations focused on subject matter tested leaving other subjects areas such as science excluded from the curricula. Reform initiatives influential to this research were the Alabama Reading Initiative and Alabama's State Department of Education's mandated testing and progress monitoring of the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) and how these reforms impact the elementary day and science instruction. The purpose of this research, which utilized a qualitative multiple case study design, was to understand how exemplary elementary science teachers in Alabama teach science given the curricular mandates that marginalize science instructional time. The central phenomenon centered on the curricular adaptations and negotiations teachers made in order to teach science. Data collected included classroom observations, semi-structured interviews, and artifacts. An inductive, interpretative approach to data analysis was used to allow for exploration of the sociocultural and sociopolitical influences on science teaching of these exemplary elementary teachers. Findings were constructed as narrative portraitures of each teacher and their science teaching bounded within their unique

    Developing faculty ownership of ongoing curricular improvement presents educational and management challenges for schools of nursing, yet little has been published about which components help build a faculty community that values curricular assessment and improvement. The purpose of this case study was to describe key features of and faculty satisfaction with one school of nursing's doctor of nursing practice curricular assessment process, with a description of key considerations for developing an ePortfolio-supported curricular assessment process. ePortfolio matrices were used as a curricular organizing structure for mapping and scoring each completed student assignment to an American Association of Colleges of Nursing Essential descriptor using a rubric that measured evidence of student learning. Faculty satisfaction with the process was also evaluated. First-year results indicated high levels of faculty satisfaction with the assessment process. The initial findings led to four actions for curricular improvement and agreement to continue the assessment process biannually. The curricular assessment was successful in generating faculty satisfaction, identifying needed areas to improve the curriculum, and obtaining faculty agreement to continue the process. A faculty community supportive of curricular assessment is essential to a transformational learning environment that prepares future nursing leaders. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc.

    2010-06-01

    This study was grounded in the belief systems and physical activity literature and investigated preservice teachers' belief systems toward curricular outcomes for physical education programs. Preservice teachers (N = 486; men = 62%, women = 38%) from 18 U.S. colleges/universities shared their beliefs about curricular outcomes. Preservice teachers completed a previously validated belief systems instrument designed to measure the relative importance of four outcome goals for programs (physical activity/fitness, self-actualization, motor skill development, and social development). Internal consistency reliability for the instrument was .98. A confirmatory factor analysis demonstrated a good fit of the current sample to the hypothesized outcomes model. Multivariate analysis of variance results revealed a significant interaction in outcome preservice teachers' priorities for year in school by region. The teachers' views also differed on the important outcome goals for physical education. Two critical "tensions" are discussed: (a) the need to examine more fully the consistency of preservice teacher/teacher belief systems, and (b) implications for teacher education and professional development programming. It is important to heed prospective teachers' voices and address their belief systems in teacher education programs.

To assist geriatric faculty in medical and other health professional schools develop cultural competence training for their ethnogeriatric programs, the University of California Academic Geriatric Resource Program partnered with the Ethnogeriatric Committee of the American Geriatrics Society to develop a curricular framework. The framework includes core competencies based on the format of the Core Competencies for the Care of Older Patients developed by the Education Committee of the American Geriatrics Society. Competencies in attitudes, knowledge, and skills for medical providers caring for elders from diverse populations are specified. Also included are recommended teaching strategies and resources for faculty to pursue the development of full curricula.

    Full Text Available Desde a sua génese até à actualidade, o campo de Estudos Curriculares tem sido marcado pela divergência de argumentos, situados tanto no plano dos discursos académicos quanto no terreno das práticas escolares. Se a desordem conceptual, sobretudo entre tradicionalistas e reconceptualistas, tem originado uma pluralidade de escritos, redigidos em diferentes contextos (social, económico, cultural, político e ideológico, as práticas curriculares têm seguido um percurso quase único, ditado por normas e regras nem sempre fáceis de alterar. Com este texto pretendemos retomar a discussão sobre as teorias do currículo, confrontando, de um lado, a teoria de instrução e a teoria crítica, num debate que ainda se trava entre neotylerianos e neoreconceptualistas, ou entre tradicionalistas e reconceptualistas, e, de outro, a dissonância entre discursos e práticas de construção do currículo ao nível da realidade portuguesa. Sobre este último aspecto, argumentaremos que os projectos de escola estão mais próximos da teoria de instrução do que da teoria crítica, na medida em que resultados de investigação permitem concluir que são projectos essencialmente administrativos e burocráticos, obedecendo a uma lógica de normatividade, construtora de uma identidade de legitimação.From their appearance to the actuality, Curricular Study field has been marked by the divergence of arguments, placed so much in the plan of the academic speeches, as in the field of the school practices.

    2017-01-01

    Four years after the institution of a new curriculum at the University of Pretoria's Faculty of Veterinary Science, a second major curricular renewal was initiated as a result of several pressing drivers, many of which were unique to the national and institutional context. During the project, South African higher education was disrupted by student protests prompted by financial pressures on students, the overt colonial structure of higher education, and the need to accelerate transformation of the sector. A structured curricular renewal process was followed, including the laying down of the principles, the structuring the macro-curriculum as a story, the design of a meso- and micro-curriculum, and the mapping of the curriculum to Day One outcomes. The resulting program is a 6-year bachelor's degree with a blend of discipline and species modules, with the first cohort graduating in 2016. There is a strong focus on skills embodied in a 62-week experiential component, managed using a unique custom-designed online platform for booking placements, documenting exposure, assessing competency, and providing feedback to students. The experiential training includes a large elective component. Several causes of loss of impetus during the process are discussed and proposals are made for avoiding these. The value of accreditation as a driver and a source of inputs is evident. The process has succeeded in producing a significantly reshaped curriculum that has been well received by external stakeholders.

  4. The Curricular Reform of Art Education in Primary School in Slovenia in Terms of Certain Components of the European Competence of Cultural Awareness and Expression

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available One of the important positions of the last curricular reform in Slovenia, which included systemic issues of education (White Paper on Education, 2011 and curricula for compulsory subjects in primary school, is the fact that Slovenia has been integrated into Europe, and thus education should also include the development of core European competences. One such competence is cultural awareness and expression, which until now has been an issue more in the context of cultural policies than school policies in Slovenia. The purpose of the present article is to critically analyse the curricular reform of art education (i.e., visual art education, through which, in terms of certain components of the competence of cultural awareness and expression, it is foreseen that the student will gain a knowledge of art, develop an ability to experience works of art and develop a creative attitude towards art and heritage. Because the starting point and goal of curricular change is the curriculum, our analysis is derived from curriculum theories, and not from the art theories and pedagogical theories that have predominantly framed previous attempts at curriculum analysis. Critical consideration of the curricular reform of art education in primary school in terms of certain components of the competence of cultural awareness and expression was undertaken by comparing curricula in the field of aesthetic education. We compared art education with music education and literature within the Slovenian language curriculum. Qualitative analysis showed that, despite the reform, the curriculum for arts education does not realise selected components of the competence of cultural awareness and expression, largely due to the curriculum’s conceptual structure. Art education is centred principally on art-making activities, with an obvious neglect of appreciation. The integration of arts subjects at school, as proposed by the White Paper, is therefore not possible, due to the existing

  7. Multiple Intelligences within the Cross-Curricular Approach

    Anthoula Vaiou

    2010-02-01

    Full Text Available The present study was realized in a Greek 6th grade State Primary School class and was based on Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, which was first introduced in 1983. More particularly, it was explored to what extent the young learners possess multiple intelligences through the use of a specially-designed questionnaire and a series of interviews. The findings of the above have served as a tool to the construction of a project work based on students’ learning preferences within a cross-curricular framework, easily applicable to the Greek State School curriculum. All learners were activated to participate within a school environment that traditionally promotes linguistic and mathematical skills matching dominant multiple intelligences or a combination of some of them to thematic units already taught by Greek teachers. The suggested project was assessed through observation and student portfolio, showing that the young learners’ multiple intelligences were exploited to a great extent, promoting the learning process satisfactorily. The results of this study can provide a contribution to the literature of multiple intelligences in the Greek reality and suggest a need for further consideration and exploration in the field. Finally, the researcher of this study hopes the present work could function as a springboard for more elaborated studies in the future.

  10. Breastfeeding Curricular Content of Family Nurse Practitioner Programs.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Webber, Elaine; Serowoky, Mary

    Health care provider support is essential for breastfeeding success. Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP) are in a unique position to promote and manage breastfeeding. There is a gap in the literature regarding the amount and type of breastfeeding curricular content in FNP programs. An online survey of FNP programs was conducted. Data collection included program descriptors, didactic breastfeeding coursework, and clinical breastfeeding opportunities available to students. No programs offered courses specific to breastfeeding: 82% of programs devoted 1 to 2 hours of didactic lactation content. More than three quarters of the programs offered students breastfeeding counseling opportunities; no programs, however, identified specific breastfeeding clinical competencies. FNPs can play an integral role in breastfeeding promotion and counseling. There appears to be a lack of education provided to FNPs regarding breastfeeding management. Creative approaches that incorporate lactation education into FNP programs may increase FNPs' breastfeeding knowledge and enhance their ability to provide support to breastfeeding families.

  16. Competency-based curricular design to encourage significant learning.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hurtubise, Larry; Roman, Brenda

    2014-07-01

    Most significant learning (SL) experiences produce long-lasting learning experiences that meaningfully change the learner's thinking, feeling, and/or behavior. Most significant teaching experiences involve strong connections with the learner and recognition that the learner felt changed by the teaching effort. L. Dee Fink in Creating Significant Learning Experiences: An Integrated Approach to Designing College Course defines six kinds of learning goals: Foundational Knowledge, Application, Integration, Human Dimension, Caring, and Learning to Learn. SL occurs when learning experiences promote interaction between the different kinds of goals, for example, acquiring knowledge alone is not enough, but when paired with a learning experience, such as an effective patient experience as in Caring, then significant (and lasting) learning occurs. To promote SL, backward design principles that start with clearly defined learning goals and the context of the situation of the learner are particularly effective. Emphasis on defining assessment methods prior to developing teaching/learning activities is the key: this ensures that assessment (where the learner should be at the end of the educational activity/process) drives instruction and that assessment and learning/instruction are tightly linked so that assessment measures a defined outcome (competency) of the learner. Employing backward design and the AAMC's MedBiquitous standard vocabulary for medical education can help to ensure that curricular design and redesign efforts effectively enhance educational program quality and efficacy, leading to improved patient care. Such methods can promote successful careers in health care for learners through development of self-directed learning skills and active learning, in ways that help learners become fully committed to lifelong learning and continuous professional development.

Analisando os sentidos em jogo, destacamos duas concepções particulares de currículo integrado: uma que visa a fomentar o diálogo entre as disciplinas escolares e outra que se constitui como forma de superação da disciplinarização. Integração curricular e interdisciplinaridade são significantes flutuantes que, apesar de defendidos em ambos os contextos, assumem sentidos distintos e em consonância com as demandas apresentadas pelos grupos que, diante das articulações políticas, buscam hegemonizar o que vem sendo significado como integração curricular.Based on the perspective of Ball's policies cycle and on Laclau's discourse theory, we analyzed the curriculum policy of the municipal school system of Niterói (RJ in the three-year period 2005 - 2008, focusing on the meaning of the curricular integration proposal and the articulations and disputes between the context of text production and the context of practice. We noted two particular meanings of integrated curriculum in dispute: one that aims to foster dialogue among school subjects and another that is trying to prevail over the school subjects. In both, the senses of curricular integration and interdisciplinarity are fluctuating, according to the demands in play and in view of the political articulations. Accordingly, the social groups are trying to hegemonize a given meaning of curricular integration.

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: The way people interpret reality is influenced by their mental constructions, their cognitive abilities and their beliefs. Physical Education (PE students have a wide range of formed beliefs concerning the purposes of PE, which cannot be easily modified, even during undergraduate studies. OBJECTIVE: This study validated the scores from a previously constructed questionnaire and investigated the Physical Education students’ belief systems toward the Greek curricular outcome goals. METHODS: Students (N = 483; males = 259, females = 224 from a Greek Faculty of Physical Education and Sport Science shared their beliefs about curricular outcomes. They completed the Greek version of the four factor instrument “Attitudes/beliefs toward curriculum in physical education”. A confirmatory factor analysis was conducted for the validation of the instrument and MANOVAs followed in order to control for group differences. Finally, a profile analysis was run in order to determine if PE students considered each goal to be equally important. RESULTS: The validation of the instrument confirmed the proposed four factors dependant model. Both internal consistency and the confirmatory factor analysis fit indices produced valid and reliable scores. The profile analysis was significant, indicating that students did not view the outcome goals as equally important. The leading goal was physical activity and fitness, followed by self-actualization, social development and motor skill development. MANOVA results for comparisons between sub-groups revealed significant differences only between genders. CONCLUSIONS: Between groups similarities and differences are discussed, focusing on the classification of the four important outcome goals. Currently, Greek Physical Education students consider physical activity and fitness outcome goal as the most important, while motor skill development is considered the least important one.

    Objective: the present study was aimed at evaluating the effective radiation dose in patients submitted to PET/CT for the diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment. Materials and methods: TLD-100 detectors inserted into an Alderson Rando® anthropomorphic phantom were utilized to measure the absorbed dose coming from the CT imaging modality. The anthropomorphic phantoms (male and female adult versions) were submitted to the same technical protocols for patients’ images acquisition. The absorbed dose resulting from the radiopharmaceutical injection was estimated by means of the model proposed by the ICRP publication 106. Results: the effective dose in patients submitted to this diagnostic technique was approximately (5.34 ± 1.99) mSv. Conclusion: optimized protocols for calculation of radioactive activity injected into patients submitted to this diagnostic technique might contribute to reduce the effective radiation dose resulting from PET/CT in the diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment.

    Full Text Available A basic component of any language program is the construction of the curriculum. There is a variety of approaches to curriculum planning and implementation from the technical production perspective to the critical view. The current article emerged from the analysis of the syllabus in a Basic English course in the undergraduate program at Universidad Nacional de Colombia and the design and implementation of a curricular unit. Such unit proved to be a powerful tool to connect what was set in the program, what students needed in terms of language and what they were interested in terms of culture. Key words: Curriculum, Curricular Unit Platform, Constructivism, Teaching- Communicative Language, Task-Based Approach Un componente esencial en un programa de idiomas es la construcción del currículo. Existe una gran variedad de enfoques en términos del diseño y la implementación del currículo; desde una perspectiva reducida a la producción técnica, hasta una visión crítica y transformadora. El presente artículo se gesta a partir tanto del análisis de un programa correspondiente al curso Inglés Básico I en la licenciatura ofrecida por la Universidad Nacional de Colombia, como del diseño y la implementación de una unidad curricular. Dicha unidad curricular se caracterizó por convertirse en una herramienta de conexión entre los contenidos y procedimientos planteados en un programa y las necesidades comunicativas e intereses culturales de los estudiantes.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Eliane Souza de Carvalho

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available This article presents the administration of the curricular reorientation that occurred in the municipal district of Dourados-MS in the period 2001 to 2008, trying to describe the official proposal of the process of curricular reorientation and to identify the barriers and facilitators in the materialization of the management. The investigation was developed in a qualitative perspective through observation, bibliographical research, a documental corpus and interview with directors, coordinators and teachers of four schools that lived the process. The results evidenced that there was not an effective participation in the moments of conception nor in the definition of the implementation strategies and/ or evaluation of the proposal. In respect to the development and/or reinforcement of the autonomy through the administration, this was compromised, because there was not wide consultation on the implanted methodological alternative. The power relationships inside and outside school stayed unaffected. The results confirm the complexity in the materialization of the democratic administration in the context of the municipal public administration.

Na primeira parte, avalia-se o cenário político e econômico, como contexto gerador da última etapa de reformas no âmbito da educação, nos anos 90. Pretende-se questionar a opção por um modelo de reforma de estrutura (no caso brasileiro mais restrita ao Programa de Reforma da Educação Profissionalizante - PROEP e de currículo, cujos temas encontram justificativa no contexto econômico, social, cultural e político contemporâneo. Discute-se a utilização de um "modelo" que toma por base experiências desenvolvidas em outros países, e por referência teórico-metodológica as orientações internacionais de organismos multilaterais, desconsiderando as peculiaridades e injunções do sistema administrativo-político brasileiro, medida política essa que pode aumentar a tensão e a distância normalmente existentes entre programas de governo e a possibilidade de sua concretude na rede escolar. Na segunda parte, discute-se a Resolução do Conselho Nacional de Educação, da Câmara de Educação Básica, n. 3, de 16.6.98, que institui as Diretrizes Curriculares Nacionais para o ensino médio, bem como as Bases Legais - Parte I - dos Parâmetros Curriculares Nacionais para o Ensino Médio.

    Full Text Available AbstractThe updated Library and Information Knowledge Curriculum (the LIK Curriculum was introduced in Slovenia in the school year 2008/09. For the process of educational transformation, besides the principles and theoretical platforms, the continuous and simultaneous monitoring and the evaluation of pedagogical process implementation are of great importance. For this reason, the pilot evaluation, consisting of two methodological perspectives was led. The first research was conducted on the basis of data gathering from respondents to questionnaires. The second research was based upon the LIK cross-curricular learning lesson observations, applying the structured observation scheme. The purpose of the study is to empirically verify whether the implementation of the cross-curricular learning lessons is in compliance with the set of goals of the updated LIK curriculum. Ten gymnasiums participated in the research, five of them anticipated in the restruction of the curriculum and five of them anticipated in the research only. The combination of two research methods enabled the comparison of some results acquired by both studies, as well as the assessment of concordance / discordance of results in individual fields. All the research participants are aware of the significance of monitoring and evaluation of the LIK cross-curricular learning lessons, required for achieving a higher quality of the educational system. We believe that the questionnaires and the observation scheme will become a useful tool for practice, or to be precise, for the supervision of the LIK cross-curricular learning lessons.

  19. Topic Order in Introductory Physics and its Impact on the STEM Curricular Ladder

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Teresa L Larkin

    2017-02-01

    Full Text Available Introductory physics courses are an important rung on the curricular ladder in STEM. These courses help to strengthen students critical thinking and problem solving skills while simultaneously introducing them to many topics they will explore in more detail in later courses in physics and engineering. For these reasons, introductory physics is a required element on the curricular ladder. Most often, introductory physics is offered as a two-semester sequence with basic mechanics being taught in the first semester and electricity and magnetism in the second. In fact, this curricular sequence has not been altered in decades. Is there a reason for this? There are many other enduring questions that arise pertaining to these foundation courses in physics. These questions include: Does taking the introductory course sequence “out of order” have an impact on student learning in physics? What topics should be taught? When should these topics be taught? What topics could be left out? The list of questions is essentially endless. This paper will address some of these questions in part, through a brief discussion on student learning in a second-semester algebra-based physics course. Connections will also be made to the broader curricular ladder in STEM. To this end, an illustration that makes connections to an engineering statics course will be presented. This discussion will conclude by presenting some broader implications for the larger STEM communities.

    Full Text Available Este artigo relata uma pesquisa que investigou em que medida e extensão a temática ambiental é desenvolvida em documentos curriculares nacionais do Ensino Médio, em continuidade a um estudo anterior que realizou similar investigação, porém em documentos curriculares nacionais do Ensino Fundamental (anos finais. Realizou-se uma análise do conteúdo dos documentos curriculares em uma abordagem qualitativa da pesquisa educacional. Nesses documentos, a presença da temática ambiental é muito menor e menos significativa quando comparada aos do Ensino Fundamental; além de prevalecer uma concepção conservacionista/científica, trazendo uma visão reducionista e pouco politizada/crítica da temática ambiental no processo educativo. Distintamente, as novas Diretrizes Curriculares Nacionais para o Ensino Médio avançam na inclusão de uma educação ambiental crítica no currículo nacional da escola básica.

  13. Supporting students' construction of scientific explanation through curricular scaffolds and teacher instructional practices

    Science.gov (United States)

    McNeill, Katherine Lynch

    An essential goal of classroom science is to help all students become scientifically literate to encourage greater public understanding in a science infused world. This type of literacy requires that students participate in scientific inquiry practices such as construction of arguments or scientific explanations in which they justify their claims with appropriate evidence and reasoning. Although scientific explanations are an important learning goal, this complex inquiry practice is frequently omitted from k-12 science classrooms and students have difficulty creating them. I investigated how two different curricular scaffolds (context-specific vs. generic), teacher instructional practices, and the interaction between these two types of support influence student learning of scientific explanations. This study focuses on an eight-week middle school chemistry curriculum, How can I make new stuff from old stuff?, which was enacted by six teachers with 578 students during the 2004-2005 school year. Overall, students' written scientific explanations improved during the unit in which they were provided with multiple forms of teacher and curricular support. A growth curve model of student learning showed that there was a significant difference in the effect of the two curricular scaffolds towards the end of the unit and on the posttest. The context-specific scaffolds resulted in greater student learning of how to write scientific explanations, but only for three of the six teachers. The case studies created from the videotapes of classroom enactments revealed that teachers varied in which instructional practices they engaged in and the quality of those practices. Analyses suggested that the curricular scaffolds and teacher instructional practices were synergistic in that the supports interacted and the effect of the written curricular scaffolds depended on the teacher's enactment of the curriculum. The context-specific curricular scaffolds were more successful in

Muestra las claves, circunstancias y momentos del proceso de construcción y desarrollo de una reforma curricular. Da cuenta de los procesos y contextos que intervienen en ello. Señala que tiene un proceso de construcción política. Pero no sólo se deben a este tipo de decisiones (como marco ideológico y social de decisiones y poder. Los procesos reflexivos que acompañan la toma de decisiones y los cursos de acción generados son importantes. Como también lo es la historia. Incluso los lineamientos curriculares y las presiones hacia el cambio que se den globalmente pueden influir bastante. Así muestra como en Chile, a pesar de partir de una política educativa en la que no había entrado la idea de currículum, ésta empieza a emerger conforme se va construyendo su desarrollo práctico y curricular. De todas las lecciones aprendidas en el proceso destaca que son componentes clave del proceso la participación y la innovación. Argumenta que hay razones sustantivas y políticas para ello. La primera es clave para que el profesorado se apropie de la propuesta de reforma y la haga posible. Por último, destaca que se produce un desarrollo de las capacidades institucionales de diseño y desarrollo curricular en la medida que se ponen en marcha y acumulan procesos de este tipo.

    Full Text Available This article presents the results of a descriptive phenomenological study with mixed approach carried out to identify the pedagogical, curricular and didactic elements involved in the creation of an e-learning environment for the students of the course Directed Research I at the State Distance University in Costa Rica (UNED. As for the method, it is guided by a process of concurrent triangulation where there is a preeminence of data of a quantitative nature that are complemented and validated with qualitative data. Questionnaires were applied to all 60 students enrolled in Directed Research I and interviews were carried out with three tutors. Findings show that most students are satisfied with the pedagogical, curricular and didactic elements of UNED’s educational model. However, both tutors and students agree on the need to strengthen actions that promote meaningful learning. The conclusions point the need to orient the teachers’ work to the students’ necessities using the potential offered by ICT for the generation of educational proposals in the form of e-learning.

Focaliza o processo de mobilização e resistência das entidades do campo educacional no sentido de assegurar a docência como base para esse curso e a superação da dicotomia entre licenciatura e bacharelado no seu interior. A análise aponta como cerne do embate a contraposição ao modelo de formação dos Institutos Superiores de Educação e de Cursos Normais Superiores, veiculado pela reforma educacional da década de 1990, o qual se insere em um contexto de políticas neoliberais. Indica ainda que a recente aprovação de diretrizes curriculares para o Curso de Pedagogia (Parecer CNE/CP 5/2005 e Resolução CNE/CP 1/2006 e sua definição como uma licenciatura que forma unificadamente o professor para a educação infantil e anos iniciais do ensino fundamental, constitui uma solução negociada entre as entidades e o Conselho Nacional de Educação.This article addresses the discussions about the definition of curricular guidelines for the Pedagogy Course, as well as the oppositions to them, which occurred after the passage of the National Educational Guidelines and Framework Law of 1996.

The selected sample consisted of 23 public and private higher education institutions from Minas Gerais that offer the Accountancy course and published the curricular structures on their institutional websites. Through the analysis of the content of curricula and plans of disciplines related to the management accounting area, it was found that, with respect to the National Proposal, there were few differences between the offer of subjects and contents analyzed between public and private institutions. There was some homogeneity in the presence of the topics covered by educational institutions, as all education institutions have more than half of the management accounting-related content. A different is noteworthy between public and private institutions in the supply of content indicated by the discipline Management Information Systems, which 47% of private HEIs do not offer, while only one of the public institutions does not offer the discipline. In relation to the GC, the HEIs have differences in common in the way they approach the content. The contents that are covered most at the HEIs are discussed in the subjects Financial Statement Analysis, Controllership and Management Accounting.

    The challenges of producing and distributing the food necessary to feed an anticipated 9 billion people in developed and developing societies by 2050 without destroying Earth's finite soil and water resources present extremely complex problems that lack simple solutions. The ability of modern societies to adequately address these and other food-related problems will require an educated workforce trained not only in traditional food safety, security, and public health, but also in other areas including food production, sustainable practices, and ecosystem health. To help address the need for such an educated workforce, a curricular framework was developed to assist those tasked with designing education and training for future food systems workers.

    An exploratory, cross-sectional survey design was used to explore the extent to which CAM was included, what factors impacted its inclusion, topics and student learning outcomes covered, who taught the material, and what sources were used to prepare for delivering course content. While the vast majority of responding occupational therapy educators reported curricular inclusion of CAM, educational experiences for occupational therapy students varied widely. This overview of the curricular inclusion of CAM by faculty in occupational therapy programs in the United States indicated that many occupational therapy educators are responding to the demands of a more integrative healthcare system. Resolving ethical and pragmatic issues, providing faculty development opportunities, and standardizing student learning outcomes would align all stakeholders and mitigate ambiguities that currently exist surrounding the inclusion of CAM in occupational therapy education.

Se ha considerado la coordinación existente entre docentes de Matemática y de Educación Diferencial, como acción promotora de las adaptaciones curriculares. La metodología utilizada corresponde a la cualitativa con un enfoque fenomenológico, y la principal técnica de recolección de datos fue la entrevista semiestructurada, participantes de este estudio fueron 10 docentes de 2 instituciones educativas con programa de integración. Los principales hallazgos arrojan que profesorado y personal encargados del Programa de Integración Escolar cumplen con las normativas y requerimientos  del Decreto Nº 170 en relación con las adaptaciones curriculares, pero dicho cumplimiento está sujeto a la informalidad en la articulación y planificación debido a la falta de tiempo y recursos disponibles. De este modo, como conclusión se plantea que existe una necesidad constante de adaptaciones curriculares, pues son un mecanismo que permite lograr la individualización de la enseñanza, mejorando la calidad de vida y la educación especial en Chile.

Valorar los libros de texto constituye una estrategia importante, en virtud del aporte que los mismos pueden dar para la conversión del currículo prescrito en currículo real. En la selección de los libros de texto que van a ser utilizados durante un curso lectivo, deben privar ra- zones académicas, por lo cual es necesario ponderar cualidades como sus criterios de calidad, los factores innovadores y la mediación que propician entre el plan de estudios y el desempeño docente en la clase. Como material curricular, los libros de texto representan una organización específica de los procesos de enseñanza, a partir de una planificación que sustenta su uso y le concede un sentido trascendente dentro del ámbito educativo. La temática se aborda desde la teoría curricular en virtud de que el currículo con- stituye el puente entre lo teórico y lo práctico, enlace que se hace manifiesto ante la utilización del libro de texto.

Del estudio se puede concluir que no existen grandes diferencias entre el tipo de recursos que emplean los estudiantes con y sin adecuaciones curriculares, salvo que los primeros presentan desventajas socio-emocionales. Sin embargo, quienes poseen adecuación curricular otorgan más importancia al apoyo familiar y docente y parecen presentar mayores niveles de tolerancia a la frustración.

  4. Leadership lessons from curricular change at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Loeser, Helen; O'Sullivan, Patricia; Irby, David M

    2007-04-01

    After successive Liaison Committee on Medical Education accreditation reports that criticized the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine for lack of instructional innovation and curriculum oversight, the dean issued a mandate for curriculum reform in 1997. Could a medical school that prided itself on innovation in research and health care do the same in education? The authors describe their five-phase curriculum change process and correlate this to an eight-step leadership model. The first phase of curricular change is to establish a compelling need for change; it requires leaders to create a sense of urgency and build a guiding coalition to achieve action. The second phase of curriculum reform is to envision a bold new curriculum; leaders must develop such a vision and communicate it broadly. The third phase is to design curriculum and obtain the necessary approvals; this requires leaders to empower broad-based action and generate short-term wins. In the fourth phase, specific courses are developed for the new curriculum, and leaders continue to empower broad-based action, generate short-term wins, consolidate gains, and produce more change. During the fifth phase of implementation and evaluation, leaders need to further consolidate gains, produce more change, and anchor new approaches in the institution. Arising from this experience and the correlation of curricular change phases with leadership steps, the authors identify 27 specific leadership strategies they employed in their curricular reform process.

In this sense, we address, initially, the aspects of the Curricular training as a mediator link of the learning, of the articulation of the curriculum and of the practices and, in this view, as a productive conduit between the university and the basic education, stressing the need for the reception of the contribution that each institutions within its specificity, must provide in the training courses. In sequence, we present aspects of the structure of the work we do with our students in Early Childhood Education Curricular Training. Finally, are detailed the aspects of a Didactics for the teachers of early childhood education and for the early years of Fundamental Education, focusing on narratives of in-service teachers on their experiences teaching in search of new systematization of pedagogical practice and on by own teachers.

The experiment lasted 144 days of confinement. The selection of animals for group formation was according to the individual weight, breed, sex condition and age. For immunocastration it wasused Bopriva® vaccine. The rating was finished according to the parameter used by the meatpacking industry ranging from 1 to 5. The experimental design was completely randomized in three groups. For the analyzes the variables studied statistics were submitted to analysis of variance (ANOVA and Tukey test both at the 5% level of significance. The results showed differences (p <0.01 at various features of productive performance and carcass between treatments. For slaughter weight, the ANC animals were higher (with 582.1 kg to Nelore, regardless of sexual condition, and the NNC were in turn heavier than the NIC, 527.4 and 503.7 respectively.

    article discusses possibilities of interconnecting a multicultural perspective and a research dimension within teacher education. It analyses implications of such an intertwinement and discusses the extent to which those components are present within the discourse of the Brazilian National Curricular Guidelines for Teacher Education (BRASIL, 2000b. Firstly, it discusses multiculturalism and research as components of teacher education, raising tensions and possibilities of articulating both; afterwards, it discusses the context in which recent educational policies emerge and analyses emphases and silences in the national curricular guidelines as related to the role of research and of multiculturalism in its proposals. It concludes, indicating possible multicultural ways by which research could be worked out in teacher education so as to challenge dichotomies, such as the one that separates academic and practical research in teacher education.

    Studies on Media have generated analysis and remarks involving many different disciplines. We have just entered the age of Mass Communication. Each media (papers, radio, movie, TV and web too) wants to interpret reality and offer it to its audience. Each message coming from media is sifted and proposed according to the structural and technical characteristics of the media itself (as M.McLuhan said "the medium is the message"). In time there have been interpretations in favour or against as well, as experts detractors or defenders of media; U Eco called them "apocalyptic" and "integrated". In Medicine there are many different pathologies referable to excessive or incorrect utilization of mass-media: obesity due to high-calorie intake caused by sedentary use of TV, anorexia caused by forced imitation of models created by media, anxiety and sleeping disorders in teen-agers caused by watching TV news. Research are being carried out on mental effort due to incorrect use of screen, similar to the research on VDU operators. Categories gathered from Cognitive Ergonomics are suggested to hypothesize models of correct use of media and maybe the capacity of getting free from the influence of media so that aware audience can have a conscious perspective and not the perception of reality based entirely on the use of any media.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVES: Curricular structure may interfere in students' anxiety level at medical schools. The objective of this study was to assess anxiety levels in medical students before and after a curriculum reform at the Medical School of Ribeirão Preto and to compare them with students at other courses that had no curricular changes in the same university campus. METHOD: Study samples were obtained in two moments: 1 two years before the reform; 2 after the reform when the reformed curriculum completed its fourth year. The pre-sample (former curriculum consisted of 307 medical students and 217 students from psychology and biology courses. The post-sample (new curriculum was composed of 330 medical students and 194 students from psychology and biology courses. Anxiety was assessed by the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI. RESULTS: Comparing the pre with the post sample, we found STAI-T scores of the students under the former curriculum were significantly higher in the first (42.9 + 1.08 and second (41.9 + 1.1 years than the STAI-T scores of the medical students under the new curriculum (38.1 + 1.0 and 37.9 + 1.06, respectively. Students from other courses and 5th year medical students, who followed the same curriculum, did not show any significant differences between different samples. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that changes to medical school curricula may reduce the medical student' levels of anxiety in the first two years of the course.OBJETIVOS: Características da estrutura curricular podem interferir no nível de ansiedade dos alunos do curso médico.

    2000-12-01

    Full Text Available No período da reforma das décadas de 1980 e 1990, a idéia das políticas curriculares descentralizadas tornou-se central no discurso educacional. O Estado poderá usar o discurso da descentralização para defender mais autonomia e responsabilidade, tal como as forças de mercado poderão empregá-lo para orientar os seus objetivos em relação às escolas. Neste artigo pretendemos identificar uma série de diferentes significados para a palavra descentralização, argumentando que o currículo é um processo intencional e prático em que os principais atores são os professores e os alunos. O ponto central é como caminharmos fora das linhas. A provável resposta introduz a centralidade da escola sem minimizar a importância das questões curriculares.The idea of decentralization became central to educational discourse during the period of reform of the late 1980s and the 1990s. The State can use the discourse of decentralization to argue in favor of greater autonomy and responsibility, just as market forces can use it to attain their objectives in regard to schools. In this article our purpose is to identify a number of different meanings of the term decentralization, arguing that decisions regarding curricula are intentional and practical processes in which students and teachers are the main actors. The key question is how to move ahead off the beaten path. The probable answer will be based on the centrality of the school without minimizing the importance of curriculum-related issues.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available No presente texto, busco refletir acerca da importante posição a ser assumida pelos professores nos processos que desencadeiam reformas curriculares. Tendo em vista que a implementação de propostas voltadas para o contexto da sala de aula depende diretamente do papel exercido pelo professor, chamo atenção para a necessidade do seu protagonismo desde a fase da concepção. Para tanto, organizo a argumentação em dois grandes pontos: no primeiro, discuto o lugar historicamente ocupado pelo docente no decorrer das reformas, recorrendo à perspectiva defendida e experimentada pelo inglês Lawrence Stenhouse, baseada na crença na capacidade de os professores se desenvolverem profissionalmente com base na pesquisa, desenvolvendo currículo. No segundo ponto, procuro evidenciar que a prática docente se constitui em um exercício que transcende a dimensão técnica, não podendo ser assumida tão-somente como o atendimento às prescrições curriculares desenvolvidas por outros. Recorro, nesse ponto, ao pensamento de autores como Gauthier e Mellouki, Giroux, Vorraber Costa e Moreira para demarcar o caráter de mediação que marca a prática docente em sala de aula.This text seeks to reflect on the central role teachers should play in processes leading to curriculum reform. Bearing in mind that the implementation of proposals focussing on the classroom context is directly dependent on the role played by the teacher, we would like to stress the need for this player to take on a leading role from the start of any such project. To this end, the text puts forward two major arguments: the first one discusses the place historically occupied by teachers in school reforms, taking as a starting point Lawrence Stenhouse's views on teachers' professional development based on research Carried out in the context of curriculum development. The second argument put forward the point that teaching practice transcends the technical dimension, often going beyond

  11. Drivers of Dashboard Development (3-D): A Curricular Continuous Quality Improvement Approach.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shroyer, A Laurie; Lu, Wei-Hsin; Chandran, Latha

    2016-04-01

    Undergraduate medical education (UME) programs are seeking systematic ways to monitor and manage their educational performance metrics and document their achievement of external goals (e.g., Liaison Committee on Medical Education [LCME] accreditation requirements) and internal objectives (institution-specific metrics). In other continuous quality improvement (CQI) settings, summary dashboard reports have been used to evaluate and improve performance. The Stony Brook University School of Medicine UME leadership team developed and implemented summary dashboard performance reports in 2009 to document LCME standards/criteria compliance, evaluate medical student performance, and identify progress in attaining institutional curricular goals and objectives. Key performance indicators (KPIs) and benchmarks were established and have been routinely monitored as part of the novel Drivers of Dashboard Development (3-D) approach to curricular CQI. The systematic 3-D approach has had positive CQI impacts. Substantial improvements over time have been documented in KPIs including timeliness of clerkship grades, midclerkship feedback, student mistreatment policy awareness, and student satisfaction. Stakeholder feedback indicates that the dashboards have provided useful information guiding data-driven curricular changes, such as integrating clinician-scientists as lecturers in basic science courses to clarify the clinical relevance of specific topics. Gaining stakeholder acceptance of the 3-D approach required clear communication of preestablished targets and annual meetings with department leaders and course/clerkship directors. The 3-D approach may be considered by UME programs as a template for providing faculty and leadership with a CQI framework to establish shared goals, document compliance, report accomplishments, enrich communications, facilitate decisions, and improve performance.

  12. Using Medical Students to Enhance Curricular Integration of Cross-Cultural Content

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Helen M. Shields

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available We hypothesized that an interested medical student group would be helpful in reviewing tutorial cases and giving relevant feedback on the curricular integration of cross-cultural content using case triggers in a preclinical gastrointestinal pathophysiology course. Self-selected student leaders (n = 9 reviewed pre-existing problem-based learning tutorial cases (n = 3 with cross-cultural triggers, and provided narrative feedback to course faculty. The cases were modified and used for the entire class in the following 2 years. Participating course students' comments and teaching faculty feedback were also noted. Outcomes were a change in case content, student global evaluations of the course, and self-reported faculty comfort with teaching the cases. All three tutorial cases were reviewed by a separate group of 2–3 students. Major and minor revisions were made to each case based on the student feedback. These cases were used in 2007 and 2008 and were the major change to the course during that time. Overall course evaluation scores improved significantly from 2006 to 2008 (p = 0.000. Tutors (n = 22 in 2007; n = 23 in 2008 expressed relief during tutor meetings that students had reviewed the cases. A general framework for eliciting student feedback on problem-based cases was developed. Student feedback, consisting of self-selected students' case reviews and solicited course and tutor comments, added value to a curricular reform to improve the integration of cross-cultural content into a problem-based learning curriculum. Our study underscores the fundamental link between teachers and students as partners in curricular development.
