DRIVE: Expanded Curriculum Appraisal Tool & Resources

DRIVE is an initiative to create a representative and bias-free curriculum across all domains of research and clinical education. This DRIVE Resource Guide includes the fully revised, updated and expanded curriculum appraisal tool and additional resources

Q6.1: Continual Improvement

Ask Yourself: Am I gathering and examining evaluation data from all sources for evidence of improvement?   

Probing question: Am I aware of all the sources of feedback available to me?  

Example: Contact course or program leaders to request formal evaluation data and informal feedback relevant to diversity and inclusion; incorporate feedback in ongoing development and improvement.  

Reach out to DRIVE if you don’t know how to address the feedback. Content experts are available to help.
