Module 3 Assignment
Course Development Project: Part II - Theories and Outcomes
In Module 2, you selected one of the three fictitious nursing programs and wrote a course description in keeping with the school's mission. You also selected two domains from the AACN Core Competencies for Professional Nursing Education, specifically Domains, Competencies, and Sub-Competencies for Entry-level Professional Nursing Education Links to an external site.that align with your content, and discussed that alignment with your classmates on Flipgrid.
This assignment continues your work on your syllabus by asking you to explore prominent theories related to nursing education and relating them to the student learning outcomes for your course.
For Part 2 of your Course Development Project, you will develop 4 - 5 learning outcomes for your course. These outcomes should reflect the program mission and course description. Outcomes should be written in the SMART format. While not mandatory, consider using the following format for your outcomes:
Template: After [completing learning activity] students will be able to [action] via [criterion]
Example: By the end of the course, learners will demonstrate critical thinking skills [action] by creating two concepts on clinical clients. [criterion].
After developing your course outcomes, we will write a paper of no more than three pages in length. Select two of the following theories.
This list is a guide only; feel free to choose a learning theory that is not on the list.
Behavioral learning theories?
Transformative learning theory?
Experiential learning theory?
Briefly describe both theories, comparing and contrasting the major tenets. Next, explain how one (1) of your learning outcomes could be taught in accordance with each theory, taking into account the theory's basic principles. For example, if the outcome is “by the end of the course students will be able to repair a flat tire," you may want to discuss how the concepts of punishment and reinforcement of behaviorism would guide how that content is taught.
Provide at least two (2) concrete examples of how using each theory can guide your course student learning outcomes. Your paper should be between 2-1/2 and 3 pages in length and include at least two scholarly resources cited in APA format.
