Abstract

This study aims to measure the impact of course coordination and instructor support to implement a research-based curriculum on students’ academic performance. Our results confirm that a careful curriculum design in addition to a dedicated course coordination can have a positive impact on students ’ learning. A reflective teaching philosophy and opportunity to engage in critical conversations about teaching and learning promoted through course coordination can influence classroom practice and result in improved student outcomes. We recommend that departments should recognize the importance of course coordination and encourage faculty to work closely towards the common aim ofdelivering the best teaching practices.
