In NSG6003 (Teaching & Learning Strategies) you were provided a teaching plan template and introduced to the importance of a well-developed teaching plan. You also had an opportunity to develop a teaching plan using this template in the first practicum. This same teaching template serves as the resource you will use for the teaching session you will conduct in this practicum.
For this assignment, develop a first draft of your curriculum and teaching plan incorporating the QSEN, IOM recommendations and review it with your preceptor. Then, as your journal submission for the week, share your draft and discuss your experiences in developing the plan and consulting with your preceptor. Use this opportunity to seek constructive feedback from your classmates.
Be sure you write this journal “off-line” and then copy/paste to this discussion forum (do not upload as a Word document). This will be something you will want to look back at as you progress forward in your upcoming role as a nurse educator.
After you incorporate your peers’ feedback from this week into your Curriculum and Teaching Plan, you will submit the revised version of the plan the Submissions Area. You need to understand that you may not proceed with teaching the proposed assignment until you have written approval from your instructor. Teaching in the practicum experience should not occur before Week 7 of this course. Click here to see the rubric that will be used to assess your curriculum and teaching plan.
Reflective Discussion Rubric
Journal Entry Requirements:
- A personal, introspective, subjective account that focuses on QSEN, IOM recommendations, personal goals, course objectives, and that ties to NLN’s Nurse Educator Competencies.
- Connected to South University’s College of Nursing Conceptual Framework Pillars (Caring, Communication, Critical Thinking, Professionalism, and Holism).
- Connected to prior coursework through reflective analysis.
Participation Responses: No later than the end of the week, review and comment on the discussion question responses posted by at least two of your peers.
Guidelines: Support your responses with scholarly academic references using APA style format. Assigned course readings and online library resources are preferred. Weekly lecture notes are designed as overviews to the topic for the respective week and should not serve as a citation or reference.
In your discussion response, provide a substantive response that illustrates a well-reasoned and thoughtful response; is factually correct with relevant scholarly citations, references, and examples; and that demonstrates a clear connection to the readings.
