Identification of Teaching Strategies for the Middle Aged and Older Adult Nursing Student at Long Beach City College.
Harrell, Brenda McCane
A study was conducted to identify teaching strategies that may be used by nursing faculty in teaching middle-aged and older nursing students. Four first- and second-year instructors of the Long Beach City College (California) Associate Degree Nursing Program were chosen as the panel of experts to participate in the investigation. A thorough review of the literature was conducted to obtain teaching strategies for use with middle-aged and older students. Each step in the process of identifying the teaching strategies was presented to the panel of experts, who were asked to review the materials. The materials were then revised in accordance with the panel's recommendations. The revised materials were then presented to the expert panel for their approval, and the process was continued until the materials were approved as presented. The teaching strategies included the following: lecture, discussion, inquiry, role playing, group process, and outside activity. Teaching strategies were matched with each of the modules in the nursing program. Recommendations were made that the teaching strategies be used in the spring of 1988 and that provisions be made for validating the use of the teaching strategies after they have been in effect for 1 year. (The document includes 22 references and guidelines for selecting teaching strategies.) (Author/KC)
