I think some people have found forums useful when they come with a query, particularly practice based and begin a discussion about it. Many of us are recent or current students ourselves and can often offer up some kind of book, journal article or whatever that helps support the argument.

Welcome to Nursing Voices!

Welcome to NursingVoices, ForumNewbie. Are you involved in a teaching, nursing, or psychology program? If not these, then just how did the subject of teaching strategies occur?

It seems to me that learning is a life-long pleasure. Whether in or out of the classroom, every day brings opportunity to gain both knowledge and wisdom. In regard to specific teaching/learning strategies, please refer to the following: http://www.gmu.edu/facstaff/part-time/strategy.html . Most, if not all of us, have benefitted from implementing and/or participating in these types of teaching/learning strategies. Web-based or distant learning courses that utilize forums are quite convenient and can provide a great deal of satisfaction for self-motivated students and teachers who are able to communicate well via the written word.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Joy

salutations!:nurse:

I really want to thank everyone who visited and posted their reply, I'm very overwhelmed by your responses. Sorry it took so long before i was able to login, i was a bit busy with as lot of things in the university.I also still prefer the classroom as the main mode of learning instruction but using web- based do help a lot as it introduces a new technologically rich environment which in turn enhances the learning process as well as the learning abilities of the students. In hand with distance teaching/ distance education, this forms of instruction are greatly considered because it's convenient (you could juggle work, family and school all at the same time and attend classes without leaving your desk)I took Teaching Strategies as one of my subjects thats why I'm into the whole teaching-learning paradigms. hope to see more post. Thanks again guys..:party:

A forum.... like Nursing Voices, in my mind is not for "classroom instruction" or even for general book knowledge. Nursing voices is the down to earth nitty gritty that each nurse faces at different stages in her career. It's an opportunity to say things out loud and find out that some of us have been there and done that...and eventually, some of you newbies will be there too.

I guess I just never viewed Nursing Voices as "instructional" yet I have learned many things from a lot of different people.

I'm sorry... I'm just rambling now. I guess if I wanted to learn a "specific thing" I'd go to a place that present all the information. If I wanted to know about the reality which is nursing... I come here. I come here often.

It is a very specific way of learning. We use it mainly with problem based learning where we are presented with a case study and it allows for a discussion of the problem and people to put forward ideas as to solutions, or if they don't understand something. Not really ideal for everyone, but it can work if everyone is engaged in the forum. If you are interested in trying, I can put one up on here.:ahhhhh:
