CI Developer-to-Developer Workshop

Overview:
This workshop is intended for software developers who are writing XML exports from school-developed curriculum management systems for upload to the Curriculum Inventory. If your school is using a commercial or open-source curriculum management system developed by one of our vendors , it is unlikely that you would benefit from this workshop.

The session will begin with an overview of the CI Specification, Competency Framework, AAMC Business Rules, and Developer Resources. We will then walk-through the following XML processes:

  • PCRS to Program Competencies Mapping

  • Event to Program Competency Mapping

  • Sequence Block and Event Detail Documentation

Three school developers who successfully uploaded to the 2012-2013 Curriculum Inventory will share lessons learned and provide hands-on assistance to participants as they develop XML files.

Participants will bring laptops and write, validate, and upload XML code to create a successful Curriculum Inventory Submission that includes program objectives to PCRS Mapping and at least once course’s detailed data.

Prerequisites: CI Developer Webinars, Parts I, II, and III
