The initial steps

The initial steps

The Curriculum Review Process

The Institute of Health Sciences Foundation Programme


Steps 1 2 preparation

Steps 1 & 2 – preparation

  • Standards – for IT (and other subjects in the GFP), prescribed in the OASGFP document (2008)

  • Needs Analysis for IT

    • a GFP requirement

    • a necessity for IHS students (e.g. web research, data analysis, report writing, presentations, etc.)

    • Allied Health graduates need familiarity with computerized health records systems

Step 3 gap analysis mapping

Step 3 – Gap Analysis: Mapping

  • Mapping included whether an outcome is

    • Studied (in course materials)

    • Assessed (formally or informally)

Gap analysis findings for it

Gap Analysis Findings for IT

  • Some gaps existed, so course objectives updated to match OASGFP

  • Total length to be increased from 45h to 60h over 2 semesters (30h course each semester)

  • IT2 course to include an introduction to Hospital Information Management Systems (to meet MOH needs)

  • Some study skills outcomes to be included in IT teaching/assessment

The Institute of Health Sciences Foundation Programme


Study skills in it

Study Skills in IT

  • What had the Gap Analysis for Study Skills revealed?

    • Over 80% of Study Skills outcomes handled in English, e.g. Oral Presentations, Research for Projects, Time Management…

    • Many aspects of Time Management also covered in other Foundation courses

    • Presentation media skills are included in IT

The Institute of Health Sciences Foundation Programme


Incorporating study skills in it

Incorporating Study Skills in IT

  • Time Management and similar “general” study skills to be fully integrated into all “Core” GFP subjects, including IT

  • Preparation of presentation media (i.e. PowerPoint slides) to taught/assessed in IT (and English)

The Institute of Health Sciences Foundation Programme


It teaching and assessment

IT Teaching and Assessment

  • IT is essentially competency based

  • Classes are mostly activity/task based

  • 3 modalities of assessment

    • Theory: to formally test knowledge and concepts

    • Practical: to formally test skills and application of knowledge

    • Log-book: to ensure assignments and study skills completed satisfactorily
