Digital Landscape: Embracing The Reality, Carol Sternberger Jul 2014

Digital Landscape: Embracing The Reality, Carol Sternberger

Carol S Sternberger

Educators must be responsive to industry’s dynamic, technology rich environment. It is important for universities to move beyond expecting graduates to have isolated technology skills. Designing curricula that will produce graduates who are comfortable using technology and possess the ability to interpret, analyze and synthesize data requires a different approach to education. The paper focuses on the various technologies integrated in a graduate course designed to prepare nurse educators to work in both academic and clinical environments. Best practices, evidence-based methods and integrated concepts from a requisite informatics course were foundational in the course assignments that focused on the ...

Development And Validation Of An Open Ended Assessment - Creative Excercises, Jessica Orvis, Deborah Sauder Jun 2014

Development And Validation Of An Open Ended Assessment - Creative Excercises, Jessica Orvis, Deborah Sauder

Jessica N. Orvis

Nationally standardized multiple choice exams are used heavily in assessment of many fields. While these exams can provide valuable information about student learning, many educators believe that multiple choice exams are too limiting. The presenters advocate for the addition of a more open ended assessment that would measure student learning of a different type, while still being incorporated within a conventional exam. This session focuses on a new open ended assessment called the Creative Exercise (CE) which consists of a prompt, leading students to write down a limited number of distinct, correct and relevant facts about the prompt. Participants will ...


Changing Paradigms In Online Education: Perceptions And Experiences Of Nontraditional Adult Learners In The Emergency Services, R. Jeffery Maxfield Jan 2012

Changing Paradigms In Online Education: Perceptions And Experiences Of Nontraditional Adult Learners In The Emergency Services, R. Jeffery Maxfield

R. Jeffery Maxfield

Planning for the unknown incident or emergency event makes the task of college and university educators not only interesting, but also extremely challenging. Max van Manen (1990) argued that the prescribed method for human science, in contrast to natural science involved description, interpretations, and self-reflective or critical analysis. In other words, we explain nature, but we must understand human life. This assertion seems to suggest learning strategies that expand beyond traditional pedagogies. The experience of nontraditional, emergency services students, in an asynchronous online environment appeared to be filled with comparison and contrast. While using prior experience and learning schemas, the ...

Using Critical Reflection As An Applied Learning Technique Among Online Emergency Services Students, R. Jeffery Maxfield, John Fisher Mar 2011

Using Critical Reflection As An Applied Learning Technique Among Online Emergency Services Students, R. Jeffery Maxfield, John Fisher

R. Jeffery Maxfield

Non-traditional students in an online introductory course in Homeland Security used the DEAL model of critical reflection to describe (a) what they learned, (b) how they learned it, (c)why it matters, and (d) what they will do with what they learned. Online discussion of readings proved to be the most effective learning technique used in the course because it incorporated reflective practices and allowed application of real-life experiences.

Reflective Practices In Online Education For Non-Traditional Students, Dr. R. Jeffery Maxfield Dec 2009

Reflective Practices In Online Education For Non-Traditional Students, Dr. R. Jeffery Maxfield

R. Jeffery Maxfield

The goal of this research was to better understand the lived experiences and perceptions of nontraditional, adult college students in an asynchronous online environment. Contemporary researchers have investigated the differences between online education and the traditional, in-class learning. Most of the work has been done in quantitative methodologies, focusing on the similarities and differences in cognitive achievement. The extant literature is replete with studies and positions claiming little or no difference between the two delivery methods. However, most research is not presented in a theoretical construct; therefore, it is difficult to create a nexus between one study and the next ...

We begin our presentation with an overview of Google Tools and the benefits of using them in your classroom. We will discuss methods to increase student access to information, decrease workloads, and create collaborative opportunities. With the current economic times, budgets are feeling the strain, as are teachers and faculty in Higher Education settings. With web 2.0 tools, specifically Google Tools, we are empowered to use the technology to decrease our budgets, create a paperless environment, and introduce collaborative learning environments into our curriculum.

Our research serves to legitimize teachers in order to empower them to encourage our digital ...
