Research and Evidence-Based Practice Curriculum Committee

Established May 2017, effective June 1, 2017.

Committee Charge

The Research and Evidence-Based Practice Curriculum Committee shall, in collaboration with the Education Steering Committee, other Curriculum committees, and the Director of Education:

  1. design and plan curriculum and educational offerings and resources;
  2. provide direction, expertise, and knowledge to creators and instructors of educational offerings with respect to content and instructional design;
  3. review and assess offerings to ensure they are high quality and current, meet learning outcomes, and have a succession plan;

in the area of research and evidence-based practice.

The Research and Evidence-Based Practice Curriculum Committee shall also:

  1. provide an annual or multi-year proposal to be approved by the Education Steering Committee for educational offering development that contributes to the MLA’s overall curriculum plan;
  2. maintain an operations manual that accurately reflects its work.

The Research and Evidence-Based Practice Curriculum Committee consists of 6 to 13 members who are appointed because of their topical, educational, and/or instructional design expertise in the assigned curriculum area:

  • 6 to 12 members at-large who serve for staggered three-year terms, including individuals from MLA Sections and SIGs with a related focus;
  • one chair selected from one of the outgoing members who serves a fourth year; alternatively, one of the members at-large can be the chair.

Transition: individuals joining the Research and Evidence-Based Practice Curriculum Committee with a shortened term because of the staggered configuration (one or two years), shall be eligible for a second consecutive term upon completion of their initial term.
