Proceedings from Advanced Training for Nursing Home Inservice Coordinators. Think It Older Project.
Ernst, Nora S.; Baggett, Sharon
These proceedings, consisting of unit outlines, presentation summaries, handouts, overhead masters, and sample forms, were designed to provide nursing home inservice instructor coordinators with the materials that were presented at a two-day workshop dealing with the principles of adult education and their application in nursing homes. Addressed during the workshop were the following topics: principles of teaching adults (creating the proper atmosphere, clarifying expectations, developing learner-centered curricula, encouraging learner participation, and identifying learner needs); approaches to influencing attitudes (participants' attitudes toward classroom learning, general strategies with groups, simulations and role play models, and idea exchange); reinforcement of learning (competency-based learning, the use of audiovisual aids, resource evaluation, creative approaches to teaching, and resource sharing); and humor in the classroom (using humor in teaching and designing cartoons for learning).
