      Preconference Workshop

    • Intersecting Populations: Using team-based learning to reach new and first-generation students

      Presenters

      Catherine Haras
      Director, Center for Effective Teaching and Learning
      California State University, Los Angeles

      and

      Beverly Bondad-Brown, Director of Academic Technology
      Jeffrey Suarez-Grant, Instructional Designer
      Maria Fernandez, Instructional Designer

      Location

      Lake Silverwood

      Description

      First-generation and other “nontraditional” students—including students who delayed college entry, second-language learners, true freshmen known as iGen, and returning older students who want to restart their careers— are now the major college-going population in the United States. These students are entering or reentering college in diverse numbers. Many boast substantial work experience that has not translated to College. How do we reach all of these learners? What approaches to teaching can unify this wide range of generations and abilities in the classroom? 

      Join our team from the Cal State LA Center for Effective Teaching and Learning, who will engage participants in a stimulating and challenging workshop. 

      Part I of the workshop will focus on characteristics of non-traditional populations. Participants will use several active learning strategies to increase their self-efficacy. A first-generation teaching checklist—useful for teaching anyone—will also be shared.  

      Part 2 will engage faculty in real-time teamwork activities. Participants will practice group work strategies from your students, learn what does and does not work in groups, and how to create the best learning environment for team-based learning.

      Description

      Do you struggle with student engagement? Do you feel like you’re lecturing has become stale or lacks energy? How can we make learning and teaching fun again? We constantly focus on how to better prepare students and how to present information in new and creative ways, what about the faculty? Teaching should be fun for us as well. I will discuss how the partnership between teaching and learning can be fun and energizing for all. Join me as we explore the future of nursing education.

      Location

      Lake Gregory (100)

      Description

      This presentation will demonstrate how the use of pictorial case studies, instead of endless words on hundreds of PowerPoint slides, can be used to drive meaningful learning in healthcare education classrooms. Pictures can invoke different thoughts and emotions than just words alone. Pictures allow students to actually experience the knowledge they acquired through their reading, explore their understanding of and finding meaning in all types of content, and allow the transference of knowledge to permeate into their clinical practice. Pictorial case studies allow faculty to bring clinical experiences right into the classroom, while allowing students to ‘simulate’ how they would respond in different clinical situations. With the emphasis in healthcare education programs to ‘flip’ the learning, the use of pictorial case studies offers faculty a methodology that will fit perfectly with the flipped learning model.

    • Session 3: How to Make the Boring Stuff Fun

      Presenter

      Deborah O’Dell, BSN, MSN, RN, PHN
      Assistant Professor, Nursing Department

      Location

      Lake Arrowhead

      Description

      Are there subjects in your curriculum that your students find boring? Maybe they believe they already understand it, or they think it is not important enough to learn. Come and find ways to involve your students in the learning process so they will actually enjoy the subjects, and learn what they need to know. You will leave this session with practical and fun tools in your toolbox. Come prepared to interact with these tools.

An explanation of each teaching method along with pros and cons or each will be provided along with the feedback received from students. We will also touch on the changes we made to clinical and simulation.

      Audience participation in the interactive strategies presented (i.e. group work, small group discussion, worksheets).

    • Session 5: How to Study: The 3-Reading Method

      Presenter

      Mary McHugh
      Provost and Dean of Nursing
      Angeles College

      Location

      Lake Gregory (100)

      Description

      To "learn" essentially means to form long term memories about a content area. In general, learning requires study. Today many of our students come to us without having been taught effective study techniques. That is, they don't know the difference between reading a book and studying it. They haven't been taught techniques to create the deep, long term memories of the content they read--that is, they don't know how to really learn. As a result, many students that might otherwise succeed, fail out of nursing school due to insufficient learning. The 3-Reading Method, articulated by Dr. Mary McHugh takes advantage of research on memory and how the brain learns. The three ways people create long term memories will be explained and one will be practiced in an audience activity. The audience will learn about brief memory, short term memory, and long term memory. Study techniques learners can use to create long term memories of nursing content so they can pass their courses, and ultimately the NCLEX, will be described.

      The presenter will provide a short "workshop" in which members of the audience will be invited to try out one of the activities recommended in the 3-Reading Method. The purpose of the audience participation activity is to have members of the audience personally experience the 3-Reading Method themselves so they can better understand how it works and be able to teach the method to their own students. Questions from the audience will be solicited.

    • Session 6: Holism: Recipe for Nursing Student Success

      Presenter

      Melynda Ruckels, RN, MSN
      Adjunct Nursing Professor

      Lake Arrowhead (100)

      Description

      Step by step, we will present our Student Success Program and the positive results we have observed in nursing students in the American River College ADN program. In the six week outline attendees will be introduced to a formula to increase confidence, learning and retention in both the classroom and clinical. Tools for success include student lifestyle self-assessment, time management wheel, journal entries for goal setting and the clinical piece of mentoring. Attendees will be given the opportunity to assess their own time management and experience a guided imagery relaxation period.

      Description

      Any cognitive or psychomotor learning strategy includes an affective   element which is essential to meaningful learning.  This presentation aims to explore affective learning techniques that may heighten students’ motivation to promote retention of learning.  Practical exemplars used in teaching mental health concepts in a SBN program will be examined and a simulation activity will immerse the audience in an experience that is focused on realigning attitudes, perceptions, and values.
