Faculty Development Institute

It is with a great deal of excitement that we announce an upcoming education opportunity that should be of great interest to faculty. NLN and the College of Nursing, Villanova University, have joined forces to co-sponsor an intense Faculty Development Institute in June 2001. We hope you will be there!

This Institute will be held on the Villanova University campus -- more than 250 beautiful acres on the prestigious Main Line, just eight miles west of Philadelphia. It will begin with a welcome reception on Sunday evening, June 10, and conclude in the early afternoon of June 15. The estimated cost per participant of $1,500 includes registration fees, on-campus housing in modern, air-conditioned apartments, all conference materials, breakfast, lunch, and breaks for five days, the Sunday reception, and two dinners. Off-campus events, such as trips to Philadelphia or Valley Forge, may be arranged at an additional cost.

The Institute is designed to enable participants to apply information provided by experts to their own personal needs. Individual participants and groups from schools of nursing will be asked to write personal objectives for the Institute and make a commitment to complete, or make significant progress toward completing, some project during the week. The goal is to have a tangible, useable product at the close of the session.

The Institute will begin on Monday morning with a presentation by Kathleen Stevens, EdD, RN, FAAN, about the "State of the Art" of nursing education and nursing education research. This will be followed by 3 1/2 days of intensive work, including presentations by experts in three focus areas. Registrants will choose one of the following areas for this portion of the Institute: 1) Critical Thinking: Defining, Promoting, and Measuring It; 2) Curriculum Development and Program Evaluation/Outcomes Assessment; and 3) Creative Teaching Strategies in the Classroom and Clinical Setting. …
