Abstract:
The use of student response systems in the nursing classroom can create an environment that is both technologically innovative and learner centered. This kind of alternative instruction delivery method is being explored as the effectiveness of traditional teaching methodologies, such as content-laden lectures, continues to be debated in nursing education literature. Research has indicated that students respond positively to more active learning environments often resulting in improved academic achievement. However, educators, especially those working with large class sizes, have been faced with the dilemma of how to provide this level of interaction. Student response systems are one solution to this challenge. This presentation will highlight research on this interactive tool including the impact on class attendance, student engagement, and how the technology allows students to influence content delivery. The results of an ongoing pilot project utilizing student response systems in the Nursing Education Program of Saskatchewan at the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology will also be presented. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate via a response system during the presentation.
