Teaching and Learning and Strategies in a Diverse Population
Students need to understand the importance and application of adult learning theories and teaching strategies within a diverse population.
As a new instructor in a MSN program, you have been assigned to teach medication administration to your students. Your course is made up of adult learners, from a diversity of cultures and ages. When considering the adult learners, how do they learn best? You will write a 3·-page paper (Excluding title page and references) that includes a comparison and contrasting of four learning theories of your choice. You will need to include how understanding adult learning principles and/or theories can add to your effectiveness as a nurse educator.
For each of the three domains of learning, please select one teaching strategy related to medication administration: Cognitive, Psychomotor and Affective, and provide a rationale for your selection.
Please use Level One headings for each category:
- Adult learners: how do they learn best?
- Compare and contrast four learning theories
- Adult learning theory and effectiveness as nurse educator
- Teaching strategies: Cognitive, Psychomotor and Affective
Please include a minimum of four peer reviewed scholarly sources. All papers should have an introduction, as well as a conclusion. All Assignments should follow APA 6th edition format.
