Authentic and Collaborative Case-Based Learning

Beth Register and Vera Polyakova-Norwood, College of Nursing
Monday, October 25, 2010, 11:15 a.m.-12:05 p.m.
Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511


Taking a radical departure from the traditional lecture-based approach and implementing an authentic and collaborative case-based learning model in an online nursing course resulted in a profound change in student attitudes towards course content, online technologies, teamwork, and nursing practice. Join us for a review of this successful collaborative case-based learning model and to explore how lessons learned can impact your own teaching.
