SOLUTION

The following is a synopsis of the accomplished scope of work:

1. Developed a contemporary curriculum consistent with the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) standards.

  • Through curriculum mapping and review of COD processes, AAL identified the components of the existing curriculum, assessment techniques and institutional infrastructure for academic program management that already met CODA standards, and determined the areas that need to be altered to meet the accreditation criteria.
  • AAL benchmarked the reformed curriculum against prominent national and international predoctoral programs for congruency.

2. Conducted faculty development that would facilitate planning and support implementation of the updated curriculum.

  • AAL provided educational leadership and change management training to the COD Curriculum Steering Committee (CSC).
  • AAL coordinated professional development activities in the form of workshops, seminars and individualized consultation for the COD faculty.
  • AAL conducted an online assessment to determine the educational priorities, values and other considerations that would provide parameters for the curricular renewal.

CURRENT STATUS

A contemporary curriculum was created and delivered to the COD.
