Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jane M. Cudmore, MA(The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences)
Description: This fourth edition of a popular nursing education text promoting innovation adds an interdisciplinary focus by acknowledging the contributions other professions make to education and the applicability of educational principles to the education of all health professions.
Purpose: Although the purpose is not well described, the implied purpose is to foster the use of theoretically sound innovative strategies in the education process. The context has been broadened to include other health professions, and topics have been updated. The focus is timely given the popularity of interprofessional education, but the book continues a heavy emphasis on nursing. It is hard to support innovation as a goal of the book when a chapter on lecture is maintained and replacing transparencies with PowerPoint presentation is used as an example of adapting to new technologies.
Audience: The topic list suggests that the target audience is novice educators, but occasionally the book is difficult to read.
Features: The strength of the book is the strong editorial leadership in chapter organization and presentation. Over 30 chapters by more than 30 authors present a broad range of strategies in a consistent approach. Each chapter follows a standard format: definition, purpose, theoretical rationale, conditions of use, type of learner (target audience), resources required, how to use method, potential problems, applied example, references, and recommended readings.
Assessment: The first two editions (1988, 1995) provided an overview of standard teaching techniques. The third edition (2001) introduced new topics, and this 2007 edition looks at teaching strategies for all health professions. The book begins with a good overview of theory, but novices might find it off-putting. Although the book offers a broad overview of topics, it does not provide enough detail to adopt the strategies. There is a heavy reliance on the nursing experience, with token acknowledgement of other health professions.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.

    Masters Students in Nursing Education

    The book explores several approaches to using different teaching methodologies in preparing to teach nursing to students. Most of the techniques are applicable to general preparation of educators. Examples are usually in a health care field.

    Now that my class has been completed successfully, I can read and study the book at leisure and learn from it.
