Problematic but Possible: Online Teaching and Learning in Post-Registration Programmes
Cassar, Maria; Trapani, Josef
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v12 n3 p14-21 Jul-Sep 2014
This artifact identifies the main challenges experienced by the authors, both nurse educators, in the delivery of a module on evidence based practice exclusively through the use of an e-learning platform. The module has been running for the past four years as part of an entirely online post registration programme for qualified health professionals seeking a baccalaureate qualification, and makes use of asynchronous online discussions coupled with traditional written assignments as assessment methods. The authors' efforts to address the identified challenges are discussed, in view of flagging the measures which may need to be put in place by educators embarking on similar teaching initiatives.
