  • Welcome to all of you. I’m Jane Zahner, professor of Curriculum, Leadership and Technology at Valdosta State University. My doctorate is in Instructional Systems Design from Florida State, and I’ve been at VSU for a very long time, since 1980. Have used electronic discussion groups since the days of GSAMS (Georgia’s state interactive television network), when email and eventually WebCT became available as alternative methods of communication to stacking and sending documents to distant sites. For the last five years I’ve taught almost exclusively online and, would have a difficult time conceptualizing classes without electronic discussion groups. I have a presentation that tries to cover a lot in a little time--but don’t have to stay with the program—I’m happy to engage in whatever discussion would be most helpful to you, including looking at examples you may have brought with you.

    24. 24. Call & Response <ul><li>Discuss the use of key health planning concepts in community health nursing practice . </li></ul>Each of you is required to REPLY to this message with a 2-3 paragraph posting no later than Friday, May 16, by 5:00 P.M. In your posting you should choose one of the key health planning concepts outlined in your text and discuss the importance of that concept in relation to what you’ve learned about community health nursing practice so far in this course. As your subject line, use a heading descriptive of the concept you have chosen. As always, correct grammar, spelling, and referencing (if needed) are expected. This posting will count 10 points within your Discussion Group grade.
    25. 25. Day in the Life <ul><li>Discuss the use of key health planning concepts in community health nursing practice. </li></ul>COMPOSE a message in which you describe a (fictional) person working within a community health nursing practice. He or she may be a medical professional or someone who works in another capacity. Include job roles and duties, and add some personality (have fun with this but limit your profile to 2-3 paragraphs). Post no later than Wednesday, May 14, by 5:00 P.M. By Saturday, you should read a peer’s posting, and post a REPLY in which you describe how key health planning concepts influence the fictional character.
    26. 26. Working Group <ul><li>Discuss the use of key health planning concepts in community health nursing practice. </li></ul>Use your private groups to discuss and organize your teamwork on the Health Planning in Practice assignment. Each week, your group is required to post a progress report, no later than 5:00 P.M. on Friday. There is no set format for the report; however, you should describe what you’ve done, and indicate at what point you are in the project. These progress reports should be compiled and are required to be placed in the appendix of your final group report.
