Course ID - CTD0473d

 Audience    Faculty
Length of Workshop:       9 hours ( 7 F2F and 2 post Workshop hours) 

* Approved CT&D Workshop for Faculty Professional Development hours.

This intensive, full day workshop is facilitated by Dr. Diane Billings, ED.D, RN, FAAN. Dr. Billings is a Chancellor's Professor Emeritus at Indiana University School of Nursing and Manager for the Academy of Nursing Education for the National League for Nursing. The workshop will demonstrate the best practices in nursing education and discuss the evidence of improved student learning that underlies these teaching practices. The workshop is a foundation for MDC becoming a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education.
The Medical Campus is pursuing a strategic goal to become certified by the National League for Nursing as a Center of Excellence. This goal is clearly aligned with the MDC Strategic Plan, particularly Goal 1: Review and transform curriculum and its delivery to optimize student access and success, and Goal 2: Strengthen instructional support to optimize student progression and degree/certificate completion.
In support of the strategic goal, the workshop is designed to consist of an 7 hour face-to-face session followed by 2 hours of post-workshop activity. Post-workshop activity will focus on the development of a formal reflection paper in which the participants will identify a minimum of two strategies they can integrate into their teaching practice, and produce a professional development plan that includes scholarship, service and leadership goals. This paper is due within two weeks of the workshop date (due date: 04/12/2012)


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Integrate strategies to facilitate learning into their own practice
  •  Foster learner development and socialization
  •  Choose assessment and evaluation strategies for their own learners
  •  Participate in the development of curriculum and evaluate programs outcomes
  •  Pursue continuous quality improvement in the faculty role
  •  Engage in scholarship, service and leadership within the academic community
