Preparing students for practice demands that academic and practice-based educators use transformative strategies to develop clinical reasoning skills. Good teaching leads the learner to know the content; great teaching guides the learner to use the content.

This one-and-a-half day interactive workshop will focus on developing solid active learning strategies in two challenging areas:

Technology-enhanced teaching and learning In this hands-on session, participants will explore and engage in technology-enhanced teaching strategies for the classroom and lab. Whether the experiences are delivered online or face to face, there are tools that can enhance the students’ learning experiences. Time will be allotted for participants to learn to successfully embed technology into an existing course.  

Moving off the lecture platform This hands-on session will focus on known areas of risk as we transition our students through coursework and into professional practice. The NLN Guide for Teaching Thinking will be used to develop solid conversation techniques with practice using these techniques across the curriculum with feedback from the experts.

Participants should bring their smart phones, iPads, or laptops to this workshop.
