A New nurses require well-developed clinical reasoning skills in order to deliver safe, effective, and compassionate care. Preparing students for practice demands that academic and practice-based educators use transformative strategies to develop clinical reasoning skills. Good teaching leads the learner to know the content; great teaching guides the learner to use the content. This interactive workshop highlights the known areas of risk as we transition our students through coursework and into professional practice. You will 1) get hands-on experiences in using the NLN Guide for Teaching Thinking to develop solid debriefing techniques; and 2) practice debriefing techniques surrounding those known areas of risk with feedback from the experts.

Nurse educators need to understand and use the power of technologies to prepare the next generation of nurses. This workshop will focus on using technology to enhance student engagement and learning in and out of the classroom. Significant time will be allotted to demonstrate and practice using the latest in low-cost and free educational technologies, including web-based resources, desktop resources, and online applications. With a concentration on practical knowledge and hands-on classroom experience, workshop participants will: 1) learn to apply at least one new technology skill to enhance teaching; 2) discuss ways educational technology can support instruction and student learning, not interfere with it; and 3) demonstrate leadership by modeling the use of educational technology. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices.
