Perspectives and Challenges of Teaching Nursing Research Using a Cross-Cultural Team
Abstract:
Perspectives and Challenges of Teaching Nursing Research Using a Cross-Cultural Team
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Brandi, Cheryl Lynn, DNSc, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Aichi Medical University
Title:Professor of Nursing
Co-Authors:Miwa Araki, PHN, MSN, RN
Background: With the recent emphasis on globalization of nursing knowledge, nursing faculty are increasingly lecturing and teaching outside their native countries. However, teaching in a culture different from one's own poses a number of challenges, especially for a demanding subject such as nursing research. Special considerations must be given to issues of language (especially technical language), academic system differences among countries, student experiences and background, student and faculty expectations, teacher experiences, special learning needs of students, available resources, etc. Aichi Medical University College of Nursing in Japan is a new baccalaureate program that opened in 2000. For the fall semester of 2002-3, two faculty members, one American and one Japanese, were assigned to teach the first nursing research course at the university. In this presentation they will describe the challenges they faced, explain the strategies they used to meet the challenges, and share their recommendations for future courses. Implications: By sharing their experiences, the presenters hope to help other faculty who might teach abroad in the future, as well as solicit ideas for improving their nursing research course.
