Curriculum Development in Nursing Education, Second Edition continues its dedication to the advancement of nursing education, and in particular, to the ongoing development of relevant yet dynamic nursing education curricula. This Second Edition offers current, accessible, and comprehensive tips and tools and incorporates a balance of theoretical perspectives and practical applications. The Second Edition has been completely revised and updated and includes an expanded focus on developing a context-relevant curriculum. A major determinant in any nursing education curriculum is the context in which the curriculum is developed and offered. This context is the professional, societal, health care, and educational situations to which the curriculum must respond, and is what makes each school’s curriculum unique. Curriculum Development in Nursing Education helps nurse educators create a program of study that will meet the contextual needs of their individual setting. What’s New: Expanded focus on developing a context-relevant curriculum New sections on educational technologies, distributed learning, and curriculum evaluation. New chapters on preparing for external program review, building a curriculum, and evaluation of a curriculum.

Learn best practices for successfully integrating virtual simulation into nursing curriculum Written for students in nurse educator programs, nursing faculty, and other health care educators, Virtual Simulation in Nursing Education unpacks the necessary tools for successful integration of technology into nursing programs. The benefits of virtual simulation in nursing education are innumerable: less expensive, easier to access, and location independent compared with nondigital simulations. Yet the evolving nature of both curricula and technology complicates the implementation of a coherent integration plan. Success requires a coordinated impetus from faculty, administrators, and students to enrich a technologically enhanced learning landscape. With a practical, how-to focus, this book describes the unique dynamics and demands of using virtual simulation as a core teaching method and focuses on the best practices for integrating this technology into the nursing curriculum. The first text to detail systematic strategies for faculty, students, and administrators, Virtual Simulation in Nursing Education examines the most effective teaching methods and activities, discusses challenges and pitfalls to integrating virtual simulation into a curriculum, and examines how learning outcomes are met. With an eye toward motivating students to embrace technology throughout their careers, content illustrates how students can leverage technologies to maximize learning and support practice. Replete with savvy tips from virtual simulation experts, chapters include exemplars that present the models in real-life scenarios, and clinical reasoning questions to reinforce learning. Key Features: Accompanied by an Instructor’s Manual and PowerPoint slides Teaches students of nurse educator programs, nurse educators, and administrators how to successfully use virtual simulation Provides useful tools, best practices, and savvy strategies for integrating technology into the curriculum Includes examples and clinical reasoning questions to reinforce content Demonstrates how students can maximize learning and support practice with virtual simulation technology Provides a firm foundation for students to embrace technology throughout their careers

Diese Sammlung von Schriften aus der Zeit von 1970 bis 1990 des brasilianischen Pädagogen Paulo Freire (1921-1997) gibt einen Einblick in die Grundlagen und Prinzipien seiner Bildungsarbeit auf der Basis der Pädagogik der Befreiung. In den ausgewählten Texten werden nicht nur pädagogische Probleme und inhaltlich-methodische Fragen der Bildungsarbeit thematisiert. Sie enthalten ebenso Analysen und Bewertungen von Politik, Kultur, Religion, Ethik und Veränderungsmöglichkeiten von Gesellschaft - eine Erweiterung, die sich gegen eine Vorstellung wendet, Pädagogik sei von Gesellschaft und Politik losgelöst zu behandeln. Scharfsinnig hat Freire u.a. die verheerenden Folgen des Neoliberalismus für Individuum und Gesellschaft analysiert und zum widerständigen Denken und Handeln ermuntert. Eine Auswahl repräsentativer alter und neuer Texte von Paulo Freire: Wer sie zur Hand nimmt, entdeckt rasch, dass uns dieser brasilianische Pädagoge nicht nur für die Theorie und Praxis unserer Erziehungsarbeit, sondern für unser Überleben Entscheidendes zu sagen hat. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Becker, Universität Hannover

Human Resource Development Relies Upon a Strong Educational Foundation In the Handbook of Human Resource Development, Neal Chalofsky, Tonette Rocco, and Michael Lane Morris have compiled a collection of chapters sponsored by the Academy of Human Resource Development to address the fundamental concepts and issues that HR professionals face daily. The chapters are written and supported by professionals who offer a wide range of experience and who represent the industry from varying international and demographic perspectives. Topics addressed form a comprehensive view of the HRD field and answer a number of key questions. Nationally and internationally, how does HRD stand with regard to academic study and research? What is its place in the professional world? What are the philosophies, values, and critical perspectives driving HRD forward? What theories, research initiatives, and other ideas are required to understand HRD and function successfully within this field? As the industry grows, what are the challenges and important issues that professionals expect to face? What hot topics are occupying these professionals now? The Handbook’s insight and guidelines allows students and HR professionals to build a fundamental understanding of HRD as an industry, as a field of research, and for future professional success.

Wer sich Veränderungen stellt und sie erfolgreich meistert, kann Großes erreichen. Der Eisberg schmilzt. Die Pinguinkolonie ist in Gefahr. Doch zunächst will keiner die schlimme Botschaft hören. Diese Parabel aus dem Tierreich hat die Kraft, uns die Augen zu öffnen. Und nicht nur dies: Das Pinguin-Prinzip vermittelt Strategien für Erfolg im Berufs- und Alltagsleben. Die Pinguine machen uns vor, wie wir in prekärer Lage Mut zu Neuem fassen, schwierige Situationen meistern und auf unkonventionellen Wegen unsere Ziele erreichen können. Nie taute das Eis so schnell wie heute. Aber keine Bange: Wer nicht fliegen kann, kann schwimmen lernen! »Egal ob Sie Ihr eigenes Leben managen, Firmenchef oder Schüler sind – jeder kann von dieser Geschichte etwas lernen!« Spencer Johnson, Autor des Bestsellers »Die Mäuse-Strategie für Manager«
