Edmunds Lecture Featuring Pre-eminent Nursing Educator Dr. Patricia Benner

Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 4:00pm - 6:30pm

This lecture will present key findings and recommendations from the National Nursing Education Study recently released by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The study—the first of its kind in 30 years—calls for a significant shift in the pedagogical approach to nursing education and proposes curricular changes to realize it. Dr. Benner, one of the nation’s preeminent nursing educators and director of the research project, will touch on the foundational concepts of curricular reform: unfolding case studies; teaching for a sense of salience; situated clinical coaching; pedagogies of formation; integrative classroom-clinical teaching; and an emphasis on clinical reasoning and clinical imagination.

Location: UMSON, Room 130

Time: Check in from 3:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. Lecture from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Reception will begin immediately following the lecture.
