Our goal is to help educators develop quality programs for their students, by providing course curricula and other support materials. This Resources section is easily navigated by using the Categories menu to the left. We recommend starting with the CURRICULA category, which will give you a variety of course curricula that have already been developed by CMATH scholars.
Once you have decided the subject(s) on which you would like to teach, you can then build out your course using the other teaching tools available here, such as PowerPoint presentations (most available with notes), videos of distinguished speakers, interviews, articles and commentaries on medicine and the Holocaust. These are listed by category in the Categories menu.
In addition to utilizing the Categories menu to find specific types of content, you can also find content by subject matter by utilizing “tags.” A drop-down list of tags is located underneath the Categories menu.
If you are looking for a specific subject that is not listed in the tags, you may also use our Search box, located at the top of the page near the main menu. Just type in a keyword – such as topic, title or speaker/author name – and all content with that keyword in the title or description will be listed in the search results.
Our Latest Posts section below lists content that is new or added recently, with the newest content at the top. Each of these posts can also be found using categories, tags, and search.
If you have any questions or need help in developing your course, please do not hesitate to contact us.
