Keywords: Evidence-Based Teaching; integrative review; teaching; nurse educator.

Background

Evidence-based teaching strategies in nursing education are fundamental to promote an in-depth understanding of information. The teaching strategies of nurse educators should be based on sound evidence or best practice.

Method

Integrative literature review of sixteen studies.

Findings

Eight teaching strategies were identified:

  1. E-learning
  2. Concept mapping
  3. Internet-based learning (IBL)
  4. Web-based learning
  5. Gaming
  6. Problem-based learning (PBL)
  7. Case studies
  8. Evidence-based learning (EBL)

The following three strategies of concept mapping, IBL and EBL provided the highest level increase in knowledge.

Conclusion

All teaching strategies enhanced the learning experience, but more research is needed. A multi-modal approach to teaching and delivering content is required to suit the content, situation and learner.
