This study examined the effectiveness of
distance education compared with campus based learning among nursing students.
Distance education in nursing curricula is increasing. Academic nurse leaders
must demonstrate the effectiveness of distance learning. This study is unique
in that two cohorts, distance learners and campus
learners, were taught synchronously by the same faculty member. Quantitative
measures of student learning outcomes were compared using SPSS. There were no
significant differences in learning outcomes between distance learners and
campus learners. This study provides empiric support for distance education as a
means to address the nursing shortage.
The main purpose of the current study was to introduce the Spontaneous Expressions Recognition Test (SERT), a new thin-slice measure of emotion recognition for normative adults, and demonstrate its relative strengths for predicting positive interpersonal relationships. To explore this question, a semester-long longitudinal study was conducted. In this study, college students were randomly assigned to small research teams and worked together throughout the semester to conduct group research projects. Peer ratings of interpersonal relationships were collected at the end of the semester. The results provided preliminary support for the SERT, by demonstrating its relative strength for predicting positive interpersonal relationships.
