You have been assigned to teach a class using gaming, in which 75% of the students are from a particular ethnic group (you decide the content area, class size, and ethnic group). Choose the topic of your choice and take into account the ethnic group’s special needs. Describe your approach, and provide details regarding the assumed characteristics of the ethnic group. Identify the tools or technology, services, and resources needed for developing the instructional gaming material.
Discussion 4: due 2/13/16
Create a pamphlet to be used as patient education material about a topic of your choice that can be used in your nursing practice. Evaluate the readability by comparing two different readability tests: the Fog index and the SMOG formula. Describe your results.
Identify an experience where you had to assess the needs, interests, and goals of a patient with an ethnic background, different from yours, that resulted in a positive learning experience. How did you turn the situation into a positive learning experience? Did you personally have to deal with any stereotypical beliefs?
Discussion 5: due 2/18/16
Seasoned nurse educators possess wisdom about teaching (a kind of “with-it-ness”), which they have developed through practical experience over the years. As a person new to nursing education, you have a great deal to learn from a seasoned mentor. In order to gain access to that knowledge, you will conduct an interview with an experienced nurse educator either in a hospital or college setting. Your interview may be conducted face-to-face, online, or by telephone.
For this assignment, you are to:
Generate a list of questions you will ask during the interview such as teaching strategies, theories, technology, and evaluation techniques.
Conduct the interview.
Your discussion post should include:
How the interview was conducted.
The questions asked and the responses given.
Anything else you think to be important.
Thinking back discussion 3 when you discussed a topic you would like to teach to a friend or family member, create a formative and summative assessment for that hypothetical educational encounter. The instructional methods can be traditional or nontraditional. Explain how you can communicate the results of the evaluation to the learner.
