  2. 2. Presentation Objectives <ul><li>Discuss the purpose of the Student Success and Faculty Development Program. </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss faculty incentives for participating in the Student Success and Faculty Development Program. </li></ul><ul><li>Showcase the Active Learning Strategies Database. </li></ul><ul><li>Share the results of the first year of the Student Success and Faculty Development Program. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Background <ul><li>SACS accreditation process </li></ul><ul><li>Institutional commitment to implementing active learning strategies in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Role of the Center for Instructional Development. </li></ul><ul><li>Student Success and Faculty Development Grant program. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Role of the Center for Instructional Development <ul><li>Purpose </li></ul><ul><li>Faculty Development Committee </li></ul><ul><li>Student Success and Faculty Development Grant Program established </li></ul><ul><li>Faculty incentives for participating in the program </li></ul>
  5. 5. Grant Process <ul><li>Faculty across disciplines were encouraged to apply. </li></ul><ul><li>Application process: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Proposal development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Statement of the problem </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Review of the literature </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Description of the project </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Implementation plan </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation plan </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Itemized budget </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Results (due at end of Spring semester, 2004) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Year 1 Activities <ul><li>Six grant recipients across the disciplines </li></ul><ul><li>Each recipient researched 12 active learning strategies during the Fall 2003 semester and submitted them to the director of the Center for Instructional Development. </li></ul><ul><li>An active learning strategies data base was developed </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of a classroom research project during the Spring 2004 semester. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Classroom Research Project <ul><li>The Use of Concept Mapping to Enhance Critical Thinking in Nursing </li></ul><ul><li>Purpose: To explore the effectiveness of concept mapping as a strategy to facilitate critical thinking and the linkage of concepts in HSCI 3201-Pathophysiology. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Project Goals <ul><li>To determine if there was a correlation between students’ learning styles and the use of concept mapping as a learning strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>To determine if students perceived concept mapping as a mechanism for increasing their success in the course. </li></ul><ul><li>To determine if race/ethnicity influenced students’ use of concept mapping as a learning strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>To strengthen students’ knowledge base of pathophysiological concepts that will be used in the nursing program. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Expected Outcomes <ul><li>Students’ exposure to concept mapping will assist them to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Verbalize the relationship between concepts as they relate to situations presented in class. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Improve multiple-choice test-taking skills. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create their own concept maps. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Embrace concept mapping as a valuable learning tool to be used in the nursing program. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Significance of the Study <ul><li>Common reasons for academic difficulty in the nursing program: </li></ul><ul><li>-lack of studying is not usually the issue </li></ul><ul><li>-balancing home, work, and school </li></ul><ul><li>-weak knowledge base </li></ul><ul><li>-unfamiliar with the content and teaching strategies in the nursing program </li></ul>
  11. 11. Sample <ul><li>Volunteer sample of students enrolled in two sections of HSCI 3201-Pathophysiology Spring Semester, 2004. </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-nursing and nursing students. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Concept Mapping Implementation <ul><li>Faculty </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Review of Content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Presentation of Content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quick assessment of student learning </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Student </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Self-assessment of learning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organization of notes </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Methodology <ul><li>Demographic data form </li></ul><ul><li>Learning Styles </li></ul><ul><li>Study Strategies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pre/post tests </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Student Opinion of Concept Mapping </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pre/post tests </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Student Opinion of Concept Mapping: Pre-Test
  15. 15. Student Opinion of Concept Mapping: Post-test
  16. 16. Paired Samples T-Test <ul><li>Mean differences for pre and post test Student Opinion of Concept Mapping. </li></ul><ul><li>M = 5.51, SD = 6.27, t = 5.50, df = 38 </li></ul><ul><li>P < .000 </li></ul><ul><li>There was a significant difference between pre and post test scores for Student Opinion of Concept Mapping . </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Faculty Example of Using Concept Mapping in the Classroom </li></ul>
  18. 19. Year 2 Activities (AY 2004-2005) <ul><li>Grant recipients presented their classroom research projects to the university faculty during the Faculty Development Day. </li></ul><ul><li>Other faculty were encouraged to participate in a focus group. </li></ul><ul><li>Each grant recipient is now leading focus groups within their own academic departments. </li></ul><ul><li>Focus group participants’ activities </li></ul>
  19. 20. Summary <ul><li>The Student Success and Faculty Development Grant program has increased the number of faculty utilizing active learning strategies in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are responding to the active learning strategies in positive ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Interdisciplinary collaboration can improve student success. </li></ul>
  20. 21. Recommendations for Other Nursing Programs <ul><li>Explore the possibility of using an interdisciplinary approach to develop active learning strategies that will benefit all students. </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate active learning strategies to determine their appropriateness for discipline-specific programs. </li></ul><ul><li>Recognize the significance of concept mapping as an effective way to encourage nursing students to link essential concepts that will enhance their critical thinking. </li></ul>
