ASSESSMENT: HISTORY TAKING AND PHYSICAL EXAMINATION
College of Nursing
We will be purchasing i-clicker technology for all students during the first clinical/laboratory course. The i-clickers will be used during the student's entire academic career in the College of nursing. Each clicker along with the associated web-based technology costs $25.00 per student for the device. We are only asking for the cost of the single device per each student.
The College of Nursing is seeking to enhance its "flipped classroom" techniques. Several faculty have utilized the outmoded clicker technology (which requires distribution before and after each class) in the past with some success. The newer technology allows students to make use of their smart phones or laptops or tablets to respond to the interactive questions utilized in the nursing lecture course. Since the web-based technologies stay with each student until graduation, the technologies can be used in multiple courses for one single cost to each student for three years (traditional) or 18 months (second degree).
