Abstract:
Successes of Teaching Nursing On-line: Student Outcomes and Faculty Lessons
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Alpers, Rojann
P.I. Institution Name:Arizona State University
Title:Assistant Professor
Asynchronous learning via the Internet is recognized as one of the most powerful education tools of this new millennium. It has become a strategic asset of academia. Nursing has historically been known for its adaptation of new technologies and its willingness to take on new challenges, so it was appropriate that nursing took the lead in developing and offering a required undergraduate course on-line. The Community Health Nursing course has enjoyed a five-semester “run” and the quantitative and qualitative data demonstrate improved student outcomes and a plethora of faculty insights. The purpose of this presentation is to describe the process of student/faculty shifting from a teaching paradigm to one of learning, of supporting students in a new delivery format, and most importantly to optimize the learning experience and positive outcomes for students. Student outcomes from this on-line offering include content immersion, enhanced critical/reflective thinking, improved test performance, advanced group work and elevated course performance as compared to traditional in-person lecture/classroom outcomes. In addition, faculty opportunities and challenges, fears and successes of being on-line with a required undergraduate nursing theory course will be explored and shared and strategies for preparation, implementation and evaluation will be shared. The "virtual university" is here, and nursing needs to continue to strategically embrace the information technology phenomenon. However, our stratagem must reflect the learning, teaching, professional development and culture outcomes important to nursing.
