Concept Based Curriculum Webinars
Conceptual learning in nursing involves emphasizing concepts that link to the delivery of patient care. Rather than focusing on expanding content and facts, a concept based curriculum focuses on helping students learn generalities which can then be applied to specifics (Giddens, 2013).
The Texas Academic Progression in Nursing project includes the development and implementation of an optional, shared concept based curriculum for Associate Degree Nursing programs that is continued though the RN to BSN curriculum of partnering universities. Because teaching conceptually effectively requires different teaching-learning strategies than the traditional methods, the APIN project, courtesy of the Academic Consulting Group, provides four live Webinars for faculty on the following topics:
- Implementation of a Concept Based Curriculum
Speaker: Dr. Nelda Godfrey, PhD, ACNS-BC, FAAN, Associate Dean, Undergraduate Program, University of Kansas Medical Center School of Nursing
- Concept Based Classroom & Clinical Teaching in a Concept Based Curriculum
Speaker: Kristin Oneail, MSN, RN , Assistant Professor, Lourdes Universiyt School of Nursing
- Student and Program Evaluation in a Concept Based Curriculum - June 12, 2013 2:00 to 4:00 PM CST
Speaker: Dr. Linda Miles, EdD, RN Department Chair, Daytona State University Nursing Program
- Preparing Preceptors for a Concept Based Curriculum - August 14, 2013 2:00 to 4:00 PM CST
The first two live webinars have already been offered for Texas faculty and are now posted on the Academic Consulting Group website for viewing by faculty across the country. The third webinar will be available for general viewing in on June 12, 2013 at 2:00 to 4:00 PM CST and the fourth, in August 14, 2013 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM CST.
