Communications of the IBIMA , 2009,
Abstract: E-learning is widely used in universities and other organizations all over the world, either to support classroom learning or on its own. The Palestine Polytechnic University (PPU) is no exception. Usually, a special kind of web-based content management system is used for running e-learning courses. These systems hold all the course content and information of the students and also provide the interactive tools to support learning process. While using such systems makes the e- learning experience much easier, it also induces some problems like the heterogeneous previous knowledge of the students. The attitude of students towards e-learning or learning content management systems is also an important factor in e-learning. There have not been any major surveys in the PPU in that regard. With newly developing multimedia technologies, incorporating simultaneous presentations of narration, images, and text, the possibilities for instruction are vast. Yet, how and when should educators use these technologies in the most effective ways to enhance learning? This is the driving question behind this research: What is the effectiveness and usefulness of using multimedia in e-learning approach in teaching the Biomedical Instrumentation course for students of Biomedical Engineering Program in the Palestine Polytechnic University? In this study, an experimental group of (14) students was examined after studying a course using e-learning approach. The instructional design approach was used. I have used the El-Gazzar Instructional Design Model (2002) since it was proved to be simple and efficient. The course was implemented using MOODLE-LMS. The students’ achievement was examined before and after the experiment. The research results proved that there is a significant increase in gain in achievement. The e-learning has achieved efficiency greater than (80%) in achievement. Also, the e-learning has achieved efficiency greater than (1.2) measured with respect to Black’s Gain Ratio in achievement. Also, the e-learning has achieved efficiency greater than (0.6) measured with respect to McGugian’s Gain Ratio in achievement. The e-learning has achieved larger effect size (more than 0.14) on achievement.

Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-11692007000200025
Abstract: this article aimed to analyze the women's health education in the nursing courses in s?o paulo, sp, brazil, characterizing faculty members and the pedagogical processes implemented. a questionnaire was carried out with 17 professors responsible for the teaching. it was possible to observe good qualification of the faculty members, in its majority with teaching experience superior to five years. in addition, most of the professors have teaching education with partial dedication to teaching and research or work per hour. the denomination "women's health nursing assistance" is adopted by the majority of courses. the pedagogical processes tend to extend conceptual references, keeping expositive classes as the main teaching strategy and written tests are the most applied evaluation method. the teaching of woman's health presents, therefore, a more critical perspective about woman's health with the participation of graduate professors and learning situations that integrate both the transmission and the active construction of knowledge.

Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2019.94033
Abstract: Simulation-based teaching ingredients actual patient encounters with high fidelity simulators, mimicking real-time patient scenarios in a realistic, controlled environment. This study examined the effect of the simulation on nursing students’ knowledge of adult nursing course before and after simulation sessions. An experimental, one-group (pretest-posttest) design was used. A convenience sample of nursing students enrolled in adult nursing course (n = 102) attended the 8 simulation scenarios. A paired t-test indicated that posttest mean knowledge of adult nursing course was higher than pre-course; however, simulation is significantly effective in helping to improve nursing students’ knowledge.

Journal of Nursing Education and Practice , 2012, DOI: 10.5430/jnep.v3n4p1
Abstract: Background: Shortcomings of traditional methods used to prepare undergraduate nursing students for the increasingly complex demands of the current healthcare environment have been cited by national organizations as rationale for the revision of nursing program curricula. In this curriculum project, two undergraduate nursing courses, in which students were simultaneously enrolled, were enhanced to meet emerging national standards for nursing education. Objectives: The aims of this project were to: 1) integrate the didactic and psychomotor skill components of the two courses into congruent modules with a focus on application in complex health care settings, 2) increase the emphasis on self-directed and collaborative learning to prepare students for inter-professional practice, and 3) implement learning experiences that incorporate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for professional role development. Methods: Guided by recommendations from the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses project and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing document Essentials for Baccalaureate Education, several enhancements were implemented. First, enhancements were piloted in the fall semester with a small group of students enrolled in the two courses. In the following semester, the full project was implemented for all students (n=126) and course faculty (n=12). Specific strategies included the development of a set of 24 proprietary skills videos, a group cultural competence project, an unfolding case study, and adding clinical situations to support learning in context in the classroom and during psychomotor skills training. Outcomes were evaluated with student and faculty surveys and a faculty focus group. Descriptive statistics were used to summarize survey data and a content analysis was performed on data from the focus group. Results: Overall, the faculty and students evaluated the curriculum enhancements positively with 57% to 88% rating most of the items as “strongly agree” or “agree”. From the focus group, faculty perceived that the enhancements were “more organized…it just flowed”, and “it made clinical a little easier. Faculty thought students were “taking more ownership…of their own learning.” Implications and Conclusions: Students and faculty thought that course changes encouraged self-directed learning and successfully merged clinical application with didactic and psychomotor skills classes. These findings may be useful for others planning course changes that enhance self-directed learning, and that want to merge clinical application within the
