Week 2 project concepts

8 Incomplete activities Week 2 How do you plan meaningful educational experiences? As a nurse educator, you have to find out what the learners know, what they need to know, and finally what they have learned as a result of the educational experience. In order to determine the most effective way to facilitate learning, it is important to understand the needs, preferences, and developmental level of learners under your care. Assessing these needs is an important task for a nurse educator. Nurses are faced with challenges, from workload issues to healthcare trends, when trying to identify a teachable moment for a learner. Through assessment, the nurse educator identifies the gap, where knowledge is lacking, and then identifies optimal approaches to provide the knowledge needed by the learner. Determinants of learning that require assessment are: Assess the needs of the learner. Assess the learning style of the learner. Assess the readiness of the learner. Your Learning Objectives for the Week: Assess learning needs of specific populations to develop focused teaching plans. Integrate traditional and creative strategies to develop teaching plans. 50 %3 of 6 topics complete Show data table for This chart displays the number of completed topics versus the total number of topics within module Week 2..List of Topics and Sub-Modules for Week 2 Assessing Learner Needs Web Page You have viewed this topic Learning Styles Web Page You have viewed this topic Developmental Stage and Learning Web Page You have viewed this topic Week 2 Discussion Discussion Topic Task: Reply to this topic Due August 26 at 11:59 PM The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week on the basis of the course competencies covered.

Week 2 Project Overview Assignment Task: Submit to complete this assignment Course Project Overview Developing an Instructional Unit This project will help you focus on the important concepts presented throughout the course. For this project, you will be expected to develop three lesson plans as part of an instructional unit on a subject of your choice focusing on one disease. The project will contain one lesson plan focused on education of a patient, one on family education, and one on staff development. The plans should demonstrate a logical approach to teaching, communicate what is to be taught and how, and outline how objectives are to be evaluated. At a minimum, each final lesson must contain the following components: Introduction: Provide the title of the lesson. Identify and describe the learners. Include Learner Assessment: educational level, developmental level, readiness to learn, etc. Describe the educational setting: (staff development, patient education, family education, etc.). Purpose and rationale for the lesson(s). Describe the philosophical or theoretical basis for teaching approaches used in the lesson. Statement of goals and objectives: Write broad instructional goals for the educational experience. Write behavioral objectives based on Bloom\'s taxonomy. Instructional methods and evaluation of learning—for each objective: Describe the lesson content. Provide a sequence for teaching activities. Describe instructional strategies. Indicate time allotted for each activity. Describe the instructional resources (materials, tools, etc.) to be used. Describe how the learning will be evaluated. Here in Week 2, you will get started by identifying your topic and learners, and describing your educational setting. Then, you will continue to work on your project and turn in your final instructional unit, to include all three lesson plans, in Week 4. Be sure to focus on one (1) disease but three (3) audiences (patient, family and staff development). The introduction should: Contain the title of the lesson. Identify and describe the learners. Describe the educational setting: Staff development Patient education Family education Include learner assessments: Educational level Developmental level Readiness to learn, and so forth. Provide a purpose and rationale for selecting the topic/disease. Describe the philosophical or theoretical basis for teaching approaches used in the lesson. Support criteria with relevant examples and journal articles.
