Title:
Incentives for Sharing Web-based Educational Material
Abstract:
Incentives for Sharing Web-based Educational Material
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:June, 2001
Author:Faherty, Bonnie, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:California State University-Northridge
Title:
Objectives: 1.Identify Incentives and deterrents for sharing web-based material developed for nursing education. 2. Make a personal commitment to promote sharing of web-based educational materials. Design: Qualitative, descriptive. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: Twelve nursing faculty from 9 institutions in Georgia and California, USA. Concept Studied: Many nurses are beginning to develop teaching materials for use on the web. Much of this work is of excellent quality, and could easily be adapted for use within many settings. To date however, there has been little sharing of this work. Perpetual replication of similar work is a burden to development resources, and discourages dissemination of existing work. Methods: Discussion in focus groups. Findings: Several themes emerged which were categorized as incentives and deterrents for sharing. Incentives included hope for personal, professional or institutional gain, such as fiscal rewards, improved material for one’s own classes or professional recognition. Deterrents included concern that development workload would be incurred disproportionately by some individuals/institutions. Conclusions: Sharing and peer-review of on line teaching material would benefit all end-users and is an efficient use of resources devoted to this development. Implementing incentives and removing deterrents should facilitate this process. Implications: Retention/tenure/promotion/merit pay procedures need to acknowledge the value of online publications. This is consistent with American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s “Defining Scholarship for the Discipline of Nursing: and with the use of technology to disseminate knowledge efficiently to an international audience. Cataloging and peer-review systems such as the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and On-Line Teaching (www.merlot.org) might facilitate sharing and evaluation of web publications. Partnerships with publishing companies that allow end-user fee for service or postings of samples of the work available for purchase on CD-ROM would provide rewards for faculty interested in developing on-line materials. Grants made for development of web-based educational materials should require a review of what is already available, just as research grants require a review of work already done in the field.
