Nursing Faculty Presentation
Clinical Assistant Professor of Nursing Cindy Johnson, Assistant Professor of Nursing Rebecca Logan, and Instructional Design and Technology Librarian Jeremy Worsham recently presented at the 14th Annual Southeastern Nurse Educator Symposium in Wrightsville Beach, N.C. Their presentation was titled “The Sandbox: Learning Space Development to Enhance Active Learning in Nursing education.”
Dr. Johnson, Dr. Logan, and Mr. Worsham presented the history of the creation of a Sandbox classroom area in the library. This inter-professional project discussed the importance of a learning space to promote active learning which allows educators to use a variety of teaching pedagogies to increase student engagement and improve learning outcomes. The presentation described the many ways the Sandbox is used by multi-disciplines on campus and how the nursing department has specifically used the classroom in their curriculum.
