Section 6: Technology for Teaching and Learning
To demonstrate technology for teaching and learning, a learning module was developed for nursing students in NRS 452/453 Community Health Nursing. The online learning module also provides access to students not currently enrolled in NRS 452/453 yet eligible based on skill level. The learning module, IVIE: Influenza Vaccine Immunization Education, is created in CIKeys using WordPress, which supports the use of diverse technology and the ability to deliver and engage in various types of interactions: individual; between students; and instructor with student. The integration of QOLT Section 6 in the IVIE learning module is demonstrated using the five objectives of QOLT Section 6.
Objective 6.1: Tools and media support the course learning objectives/outcomes.
QOLT Objective 6.1 video looks at the tools and media used in CIKeys and WordPress in designing a module to meet the learning objectives for the IVIE module.
Objective 6.2: Instructor takes advantage of current tools provided by the Learning Management System (or similar) to enhance learning; and,
Objective 6.3: Technological tools and resources enable student engagement and active learning.
QOLT Objectives 6.2 & 6.3 video discusses the specific tools and resources within the IVIE module that are used to engage students in active learning. A demonstration of Animoto, Wp-Pro Quiz, Camtasia, and a Blog shows how diverse technological tools can enable student engagement and active learning.
Objective 6.4: Instructor provides clear information regarding access to the technology and related resources required in the course; and,
Objective 6.5: Acceptable technological formats for assignment completion and submissions are articulated.
QOLT Objectives 6.4 & 6.5 are articulated through course syllabus technology and assignment descriptions.
