Since beginning this course you have no doubt become more aware of the great variety of teaching/learning opportunities within nursing and the many creative choices that an effective educator might make in any one situation. This Application assignment invites you to think creatively about how to apply adult learning and student-centered principles to an educational effort already under way in your own practice setting that involves an adult individual (s) or group with specific barriers to learning (i.e. elderly patient with low vision or hearing; nursing student with a physical, mental, or emotional issue; single parent trying to manage work, family, and school with little social support; a community group with high incidence of diabetes and low literacy; migrant farm worker with no insurance or transportation).
Select a learning plan or program for an adult individual(s) or group in which you and/or colleagues are already involved as educators. Perhaps you instruct diabetic patients on how to understand their diet, insulin, and exercise; or teach new parents how to give their baby a bath; or offer stress management workshops in your hospital. If you are not directly involved in providing the learning experience, consult with your manager and colleagues to find out details of this educational practice. After critiquing the learning plan, propose ways to improve it and to help the learner or group overcome some of the barriers to learning. Evaluate the effectiveness of this revised learning plan.
Review your Learning Resources for guidance on planning a learning activity, particularly the strategies described in Chapter 12 in Billings & Halstead on assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation. To further help you develop and support your ideas, conduct a literature search to become better informed about the subject matter, the population, barriers to learning, setting, materials, or teaching methods. Cite at least five peer- reviewed resources in your paper in support of your plan.
In your 5-page paper, you should include the following:
�Describe the selected type of adult learner, learning topic, and any relevant circumstances about this educational effort in your practice setting. Identify the specific learning that needs to occur and provide relevant details about this individual or group. What are the most important features about these learners, the topic, and the environment that could impact the learning experience?
�Describe in detail how this learning activity is currently being conducted. What kind of written plan already exists for this? On which learning theory or framework, if any, do you think this plan is based? As far as you know, how successful has this experience been for learners?
�Critique the plan according to your understanding of adult learning theory and student-centeredness, and other relevant information from your Learning Resources and literature search. In what ways does it incorporate effective learning principles?
In what ways could the plan be improved and reasonably resolved, given the individual or group’s barriers to learning? Refer to other literature you have found through research as appropriate. Explain how you would apply your knowledge from this course, particularly on adult learning, to make the experience more effective.
Cite at least five sources, including peer-reviewed and other scholarly outside resources, to support your ideas.
�Identify and explain the desirable and reasonable outcomes you expect from your revised teaching plan and consider how you could evaluate the effectiveness of this new plan.
