The Benner Institute is offering two webinars on online teaching and learning in nursing education. These webinars offer a learning science and learner-centric curriculum to increase and maintain student engagement. Each webinar begins with a theoretical framework and then gives suggestions for course design and delivery of the content.
Both webinars will be followed by two Community Dialogue Sessions in the weeks that follow. These Community Dialogue Sessions will be limited to 20 participants and will be a forum for open dialogue among the participants to learn from each other. We encourage participants to bring their triumphs and challenges to discuss during these sessions. The sessions will be facilitated by Drs. Patricia Benner, Garrett Chan, and Susan McNiesh. Each Community Dialogue Session is independent from the other session, so you only need to sign up for one.
