NURS 600 Principles of Teaching and Learning

This course is designed to provide an opportunity to explore the role of educator in both academic and clinical settings as advanced practice nurses. Understanding how people learn and the various theories about learning is fundamental to being able to develop solid educational plans. Faculty roles are changing to meet the needs of learners in a world experiencing explosive technological advances. The educator role now synthesizes a broader range of scholarship which emphasizes discovery, integration, application, and the scholarship of teaching. A variety of both traditional and innovative teaching and evaluation methodologies will be explored as well as appraising the four major components of the educator role: teaching, curriculum, information technology, and evaluation of students and programs.

 This is a blended course.
