Part 1, CBC from the Ground Up – How Did We Get Here?

Description

This webinar will introduce participants to the rationale for use of conceptual teaching and learning and will discuss the motivation for the movement toward a concept-based curriculum in nursing that is happening around the country. Participants will consider how to identify key concepts for the nursing curriculum and explore best practices in identification of exemplars used to illustrate concepts for nursing.

Objectives: Participants will be able to

  1. Articulate the rationale for conceptual teaching and use of a concept-based curriculum in nursing.
  2. Examine concept based-curriculum development and revision.
  3. Describe the process for selecting curricular concepts and exemplars when building the nursing curriculum.

Part 2, CBC from the Ground Up – The Essentials!

Description

This webinar will build participant’s understanding of teaching in a concept-based curriculum, including innovative strategies for bringing conceptual learning into all learning environments. Participants will discuss active learning techniques that are suited for conceptual teaching and learning. Implementing a conceptual approach requires change, and this webinar includes strategies and thinking about how to put your plan into action.

Objectives: Participants will be able to

  1. Describe several innovative learning strategies that bring concepts to life.
  2. Identify active learning methods that are well suited to concept-based teaching and learning.
  3. Consider important factors for success when implementing a concept-based curriculum.

Part 3, CBC from the Ground Up – The Classroom

Description

Using conceptual learning is crucial to successful implementation of the concept-based curriculum and development of clinical judgment in our students. The paradigm shift for faculty and students is significant and can be a challenge. Creating effective learning and assessment activities is as important as the curriculum revision. Emphasis on developing habits of “compare and contrast” with everything from life-span to pharmacology will be addressed. Helping faculty better understand the crossover from class-time to lab to clinical will be explored.

Objectives: Participants will be able to

  1. Critique a learning activity based on the principles of “compare and contrast”.
  2. Critique a learning activity that can be used in class and clinical.
  3. Analyze student retention and success strategies to promote the development of clinical judgment in the concept-based curriculum.

Part 4, Concept-Based Learning: Lab/Sim and Clinical

Description

Teaching in a concept-based curriculum (CBC) presents nursing phenomena that naturally involve more than one related concept: concepts can occur together or consecutively. This webinar will assist faculty with identifying ways in which concepts may be related to one another in a CBC and provide examples from clinical and simulation learning environments.  Examples of learning activities relevant to the simulation center or clinical environment will be shared.

Objectives: Participants will be able to

  1. Differentiate between concepts that are tightly versus loosely connected in the concept-based nursing clinical environment.
  2. Examine strategies for connecting related concepts in simulation and clinical environments.
  3. Identify concepts that may be connected together in the curriculum with a focus in the simulation learning experience.
