Sharing Course Changes With Students
To help highlight evidence-based changes for our learners and faculty and share best practices, the educational evaluations team will be implementing a communication plan, derived from evaluation findings. Course directors will now use a standardized template called What was changed…because the evidence showed… to share course changes with students. In addition, this Education Continuous Quality Improvement (ECQI) Corner of the Bridges Newsletter will feature stories of changes based on evaluation evidence to highlight best practices on a monthly basis.
