Design and Implementation of a Spiral Curriculum: Lessons Learned

From the 2020 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (February 29, 2020)
Presented by Mariane Wolfe, Kathleen Hoag and Rachel Morris
In this session presenters will share their experiences in renovating the Michigan State University undergraduate curriculum to better prepare students to enter the workforce. They used the spiral curriculum as a foundation for the curriculum renovation. The session will discuss design, implementation, and assessment of the curriculum.


At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Describe application of a spiral curriculum design in medical laboratory science education.
2. Outline how a spiral curriculum can be constructed for one of the four main discipline areas of medical laboratory science.
3. Identify at least one way in which the success of a curriculum change can be assessed.
