2 - Transforming Curriculum, Transforming Roles: New Paths to Curriculum Integration

Sunday, May 28
3:20 PM - 3:35 PM
Room: 615

Objectives: To describe the process and outcomes of transforming an instructional session on critical appraisal of systematic reviews from a librarian-led large group active learning model to faculty-led small group discussions as a part of the curricular redesign of a large medical school.

Methods: Recent efforts to transform the curricula at many undergraduate medical schools in the US provide areas of unique opportunities and challenges to health sciences librarians involved in curriculum-integrated instruction. This paper will describe how a team of librarians adapted an existing session on critical appraisal of systematic reviews to be incorporated into the newly developed M1 curriculum at a large Midwestern medical school. This paper pays particular attention to the changing roles of the librarians from instructors to curriculum designers for faculty-led small groups as a part of the curriculum redesign process.
