1 Department of Biological Sciences Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology CIP Code: 570 Program Quality Improvement Report

2 Student Learning Outcomes 1.Students will be able to explain the basic structures and fundamental process of life at cellular, molecular, and organismal levels. 2.Students will understand the process of scientific inquiry and the role of observation, experimentation, and communication of scientific information. Bloom’s Taxonomy Program Quality Improvement Report

3 Alignment of Learning Outcomes with the Cameron University Mission All of the Medical Technology learning outcomes are: –designed to provide a diverse and dynamic student body access to quality educational opportunities. –student-centered and are met through a combination of innovative classroom teaching and experiential learning. –designed to prepare students for professional success, responsible citizenship, life-long learning, and meaningful contributions to a rapidly changing world. Program Quality Improvement Report

4 Alignment of the Learning Outcomes with the School of Science and Technology Mission All of the Medical Technology learning outcomes are designed: –to educate students in an intellectual atmosphere based on excellence in academic work, high ethical standards, and exposure to latest technological advances. –to deliver student support which gives our students the skills and confidence to excel as lifelong learners. –to ensure success of graduates in a diverse and ever- changing environment. Program Quality Improvement Report

5 Alignment of the Learning Outcomes with the Department of Biological Sciences Mission All of the Medical Technology learning outcomes are designed to: –to provide high quality instruction to students at the undergraduate level with emphasis on active learning, problem solving, and critical thinking. –to improve knowledge in various fields of biology through research and scholarly activities. –to achieve excellence in education. Program Quality Improvement Report

6 Alignment of the Learning Outcomes with the Strategic Plan 2013 Goal 1.1: Maintain and enhance Cameron’s commitment to providing programs of the highest quality to instruction, research, and service to better meet the needs of the citizens of the region. –Meet and exceed National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS) standards –Provide trained professionals in a career which has insufficient numbers of qualified individuals in South West Oklahoma Program Quality Improvement Report

7 Alignment of the Learning Outcomes with the Program Mission All of the Medical Technology learning outcomes are designed to meet the program mission: 1. Improve on students’ initial knowledge on biology/medical technology as established by estimating the baseline knowledge of incoming medical technology majors. 2. Gain acceptance into an accredited clinical program at an affiliated hospital. 3. Successful completion of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) certification Examination. Program Quality Improvement Report

8 Measures of Learning and Service Outcomes 1.Direct measures – Baseline assessment exam – Acceptance into Clinical Rotation – Completing the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) Certification 2.Indirect measures – Employment 3.Addressing shortfalls in student learning – Recitation/Review Sessions – Personal advising Program Quality Improvement Report

10 PQIR Action Plan Our program is well structured to prepare students for acceptance into a clinical program, board certification, and employment. In addition, we work with students from the time they enroll in our program. Each student declaring an interest in pursuing a medical technology career has an advisor who will work with that student throughout his/her school years. Most faculty offer course-specific tutoring, recitation, and/or help sessions for students having difficulty with course work. Our main problem is retaining students from their freshman year until they apply for a clinical program. Therefore our action plan is geared toward retention. Program Quality Improvement Report

11 Report on actions from the previously chosen priority outcome 11 Program Quality Improvement Report Identified the causes of the low retention in this program: 1.Incoming students are unaware of what a medical technologist is when they declare a major (they think they enroll in a pre-med program). 2.Incoming students do not have a full appreciation of the program course requirements. 3.Medical technologists are not as well paid as other medical professions (i.e. nurses). 4.There are only 20 clinical rotation seats for medical technology at the three hospitals affillitated with the Oklahoma Consortium of Clinical Laboratory Science Affiliates. 5.The profession lacks advocates to promote it and improve earning potential.

12 Report on actions from the previously chosen priority outcome 12 Program Quality Improvement Report Retention of Students. Develop a retention plan to deal with student attrition in BIOL 1364 and Reduce class size from 50 students to 35 students in BIOL 1364 and Reduction in class size will enable the instructor to have more individualized instruction with each student. The instructors will be better able to detect student difficulties with the course material and adapt teaching methods to accommodate any learning deficiencies. 2.Recitation/Review Sessions. Instructors provide additional time for students during Recitation/Review Sessions during which time students receive additional assistance in mastering course content.

13 Learning Outcomes The Learning Outcomes we will discuss are: #2. Students will understand the process of scientific inquiry and the role of observation, experimentation, and communication of scientific information. #3. Students will be able to apply current technology and scientific methodologies to collect, organize, analyze, and interpret qualitative and quantitative data. #5. Students will understand equipment, materials, chemicals, and specimens, used in biological sciences and clinical laboratory, and the application of procedures for their proper, safe, and legal use.

27 PQIR Action Plan 1. We need to add the midlevel capstone class to the course requirements to enhance student written and oral communication skills to prepare them for the workforce. 2.We need to add a midlevel assessment exam to determine the strengths and weakness of the core courses at preparing students for upper level courses and their clinical rotation classes.
