Abstract: This digest focuses on the major changes that college and university faculty have designed in their undergraduate professional education programs in three areas: accounting, nursing, and teacher education. Reforms in each of these programs are reviewed. The changes seen in these three professional education programs offer lessons for faculty in many different disciplines. Several thematic elements can be identified from this review of curriculum reform. Many reforms require students to be engaged actively in their studies, and students often work on real-world issues or problems. Problems are usually open-ended with no single correct answer, and in all three fields assessments of student learning are being used to gauge whether students are mastering the intended learning outcomes.
