Transforming nursing education is not easy. Working collaboratively to improve our understanding of today’s learner will result in improved teaching strategies that will have a direct effect on the learning process. Reach beyond the usual and customary techniques and uncover modern insights on today’s learners. This webinar will provide participants with new insights on how the use of the most recent neural research and educational strategies which are ‘brain friendly’ make for effective teaching. These techniques emphasize the need for teachers to link learning concepts to students' daily lives, emotional experiences and their previous learning experiences.

What started as research on medication safety has uncovered themes related to a hesitancy to question perceived authority and, while many of us include leadership theories in didactic courses, we infrequently provide opportunities to practice the discomfort of having difficult conversations. This webinar will explore the themes of generation, gender, and “just following” on bravery and will conclude with suggested ideas for simulations that can provide the opportunity for our learners to practice the discomfort that can accompany speaking-up for safety.

While good at what we do as nurses, not every nurse who finds herself in a faculty role has a background in teaching students. This webinar will provide information about what to do and not do in the classroom - be it distance or in person- to help improve your teaching skills and make you a more effective nurse educator.
