This is part III of organising posts from this blog into grouped resources for the nurse educator, and the focus is on the delivery of education (Part I: The Nurse Educator Role and Part II: Adult Learning Theory).
Subject intended learning outcomes (SILOs) are explicit statements of what a learner is expected to achieve, and to what standard or level of achievement (Biggs and Tang, 2011). When creating nurse education and training in the workplace, simulation centre or higher education setting, the importance of designing intended learning outcomes are vital. ILOs are central to the design of teaching and assessment so should be part of the initial planning phases.
Choosing the delivery method of the learning activity and any related tasks provides a stage for effective teaching and engagement from the participants perspective. The nurse educator needs to consider the best method/s for delivering content. Here are some education delivery focused resources:
- Learning Styles (Dont Exist?)
- Flipped Classroom
- Blended Learning
- Peyton’s 4 Step Approach for Skills Teaching
- One Minute Preceptor
- Deliberate Practice: Practice Like You Play
- Learning: Paper or E-books?
- Chunking Theory: Bitesize Learning
- Microlearning: Learning on the go.
- Pomodoro Technique: Study Skills
- Make it Visual with Slide-ology
The below links are to the resources focusing on the educator role and education theory.
