Session Description

The Aromatherapy Program Chair and Director of Library Services and Instruction at the American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) will share the benefits of Coursetune, a highly visual learner-centered instructional design tool for curriculum mapping, to the faculty and curriculum design team at ACHS.

Specifically, the presenters will expound upon the benefits of having a single platform for all outcome and assessment documents, that may also be used to train faculty on assessment implementation and curriculum design.

At the conclusion of the session, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the connection between curriculum design and student outcomes specifically as it pertains to student retention processes.
  • Explain to others the benefits of mapping curriculum to identify gaps.
  • Identify new ways to see how programs align to industry standards.
  • Reflect meaningfully on how their institution conducts course and program reviews.
