Deadline for submission of course development team applications extended to Friday, March 1
Feb. 7, 2013
The Office of Educational Affairs is seeking IU School of Medicine faculty to participate in the development of the courses in our new curriculum. The office is seeking faculty from across the nine IU School of Medicine campuses. Student leaders are overseeing the process to identify student members for each course development team.
Faculty may self-nominate or be nominated by their chair and/or center director, if appropriate. Faculty may apply to be a member of more than one team but will be ultimately selected to serve on only one team. Specifics about the goals for this stage of the reform process, team composition, support for the teams during this stage of the reform and the timeline for the work is available at the Curricular Reform 2013-14 Oncourse site.
Candidates should submit a letter of interest that includes a statement describing why they are interested in participating, their past experience teaching or developing, implementing or directing courses, area of content expertise and any additional information that highlights how they will contribute to the work of the team along with a curriculum vitae to Kelli Ramsey at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 1.
Candidates are also asked to state if they would like to be considered for the position of course development team leader.
A selection committee is composed of representatives from the following stakeholder groups: chairs from foundational science and clinical departments, directors of our centers for medical education, members of the Curriculum Council Steering Committee, administrative leaders from educational affairs and faculty from the 2.5 curriculum reform team and students.
Course development teams will be announced no later than Friday, March 15.
We are looking forward to this next stage of the planning process but we can’t do it without the faculty -- faculty are our content experts and the dedicated teachers who will shape the courses in our new curriculum.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions and thank you in advance for your support and engagement in this exciting process.
