Curriculum Design

Based on your research and the data you gather through your Part 3 Planning Guide, include the following:

  • A brief description of your focus setting (pediatric asthma clinic); the type of education program to be developed; and the target audience for that education program (patients and care givers, nursing students and nurses) 
  • A list 2–3 end-of-program outcomes
  • Explain how these end-of-program outcomes align with the mission, vision, philosophy, and overall goal of your setting. Use the Learning Resources and/or the best available evidence from current literature to support your explanation.
  • Explain how these end-of-program outcomes will address the educational needs of the target learners. Use the Learning Resources and/or the best available evidence from current literature to support your explanation.
  • Present an illustration of Curriculum Design (in the same Part 3 Assignment of your Course Project):
    • Create a graphic that depicts your program of study education plan. (Note: You may create your graphic in any file type you choose, e.g., Word, PowerPoint, .JPG.)
    • Explain the program sequence by describing 3–5 courses/learning experiences in the recommended order of presentation.
    • For each course/learning experience, identify 2–3 learning outcomes.
    • Select one course and identify 2–3 learning objectives that support the achievement of each of the learning outcomes.
    • Explain how each of the 3–5 courses/learning experiences scaffolds learning toward the end-of-program outcomes. Use the Learning Resources and/or the best available evidence from current literature to support your explanation.
