Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Janice K. Warrington, MSNEd, RN (Delaware Technical & Community College)
Description: This book presents teaching strategies appropriate for nursing educators as well as educators working in all health-related professions. The strategies are developed for use in traditional classroom settings, technology-based settings, and clinical settings. This edition takes a more in-depth look at teaching strategies appropriate for all educators than previous editions.
Purpose: Interdisciplinary collaboration in health professions education is the emphasis of this book. The authors intend the book to be a useful resource for educational programs in all health professions. The authors meet their objectives by expanding strategies for various forms of technology as well as for diversity of learners, including generational diversity.
Audience: The book is a resource for educational principles and techniques suitable for students in all higher education settings. Martha Bradshaw, RN, MSN, PhD, is a professor at Louise Herrington School of Nursing at Baylor University in Dallas and Arlene Lowenstein, RN, PhD, is professor and director of Health Professions Education Doctoral Program for the School of Health Sciences of Simmons College in Boston.
Features: The authors discuss a broad range of strategies, techniques for developing the learning environment to best use the strategies, how to deal with problems that could occur, specific examples of the strategies as they have been used, and resources available for further information. They focus on innovation, creativity, and evaluation and have developed strategies that are appropriate for use in a variety of settings. New chapters cover topics such as cultural diversity in the classroom and the use of multimedia and video techniques.
Assessment: The third edition is in my library and it was an excellent resource for me, both as I completed my graduate program and as I began my teaching career. This update is an excellent addition to any educator's resource library.
