Proposal Title

A Report on Student Satisfaction: Moving Toward Learner-Centered Teaching in Undergraduate Nursing Research

Proposal Abstract

This session will explore students' responses to changes in the delivery of undergraduate level nursing research. This course has historically been an unpopular course for the students. Efforts need to be made for this course to be more interesting to students. For example, incorporating learner centered methods of teaching has the potential to engage the students in wanting to learn. This is a switch in focus from having to learn the content to wanting to explore, evaluate, implement and apply knowledge. This session will present preliminary data from a study to determine if moving toward learner centered classroom practices facilitates student satisfaction as measured by student responses on SIRS (Student Instructional Reports), standardized comment sheets and replies to focus group interview questions. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to evaluate current practice and research related to their discipline and make recommendations for potential changes.
