Hello Group C! Making sure everyone is aligned is basically like making sure everyone is on the same page. If a group is on different pages the story line will be so confusing, making sure that the curriculum that I am creating fits right with my vision, mission, and philosophy that I am aiming for. If it doesn’t make sense, then the staff and patients will not be sure about the facility they are choosing. Your objective is for students to learn to apply analytical skills, but your assessment measures only factual recall. Consequently, students hone their analytical skills and are frustrated that the exam does not measure what they learned (Carnegie Mellon University, n.d.). Knowing what can happen if everything isn’t aligned will help with the process. The important role played by programed and course curriculum designing securing a successful shift from the intended learning outcomes (ILOs) to the achieved learning outcomes (ALOs) still requires further attention (Alfauzan & Tarchouna, 2019). One method a nurse educator at a medical facility would be to ask nurses for their feedback on certain things and make changes to benefit everyone. Another method would ask the staff to participate. Curriculum alignment is the soul of a successful curriculum. Educators’ understanding, competencies, skills, time and efforts, institutional support and stakeholders’ collaboration are essential ingredients to achieve maximum students’ learning outcomes (Khan et al., 2015). Creating a curriculum really showed me how difficult starting from scratch is as an educator.
