Understanding and Teaching Today’s Learners

Our traditionally aged students are different.  They have characteristics and expectations that present unique challenges to those of us charged with teaching, serving and supervising them in their journey to become health care professionals.  Their issues with academic preparation, responsibility and self-esteem, consumer expectations, use of technology and styles of interacting can impact, and interfere with, their learning, persistence and academic success at school, and workplace readiness and success.  This program will help CHP faculty understand the social, personal and academic traits and preferences our students bring to college, how these characteristics impact learning, persistence and success, and how we can organize our classes to best help all of our students reach their educational and personal goals.

Techniques in Teaching Today’s Learners

This program will help CHP faculty transition more fully to a researched informed model of learning based on increasing both student activity and leveraging available technologies to improve instructional efficiency and effectiveness toward creating compete health care professionals.  An instructional model and methods to increase students’ responsibility for their own learning, personal ownership of class goals and to improve students reaching meaningful learning and developmental goals will be described with immediately applicable techniques appropriate and effective with all learners.
