Benchmark – Curriculum Design and Program Evaluation

Benchmark – Curriculum Design and Program Evaluation
Curriculum design is an essential part of a program design and it guides stakeholders to achieve overall desired course and program outcomes. Program evaluation is a routine assessment of various parts of a program and a measure of intended goals. Program evaluation is done for a variety of purposes, including evaluating program implementation, determining program effectiveness, providing direction, and guiding improvements. The purpose of this assignment is to become familiar with the program evaluation process.

Use the program outcomes on the example lesson plan in Chapter 10 of the Teaching in Nursing: A Guide for Faculty textbook. Create a hypothetical course framework that includes a course description and learning outcomes. Provide a rationale for how your course fits within the program and aligns to program outcomes. Your course outcomes should be different from the ones in the example lesson plan. Include a detailed explanation of how you plan to evaluate the course\’s success within the program.
