Challenges In Assuring Quality When Transforming Nursing Courses to CD ROM and Internet Formats

Title:Assistant Professor
The purpose of this presentation is to describe the challenges encountered by ten faculty members in assuring the quality of their courses was maintained when moving from classroom based to CD ROM and Internet based delivery formats. This group of faculty were part of a pilot project to transform the curriculum of a School of Nursing (SON) RN to Bachelors Degree Program. The change to CD ROM and Internet based delivery was in response to the needs of Associate Degree nurses in rural areas who face significant obstacles in obtaining their Bachelors Degree. These obstacles include geographic distance, family demands, and inflexible work schedules. Internet and CD ROM based coursework is a workable option. The faculty came from four regional campuses covering 94,000 square miles. They represented a broad range of experience both in teaching and in distance education, from beginners to highly experienced teachers. They collaborated with each other, media specialists, and an instructional designer in the transformation of nine theory and two clinical courses. This presentation will discuss: 1. Challenges in identifying and inviting faculty to participate in implementation of technological curriculum transformation in a SON; 2. Preparation and support for faculty in evaluation of course structure, objectives, assignments, and evaluation; 3. Evaluation of, and options for, meeting the socialization and communication needs of students; 4. Creating efficient and effective assignments and examinations; and 5. Maintaining spontaneity for including unplanned, but valuable content and interaction. The presentation will include demonstration of CD ROM examples, if conference technology permits.
