SACAD: John Heinrichs Scholarly and Creative Activity Days


Typical nursing lectures consist of a power point, and a lecturer discussion of a particular subject, such as a disorders, treatments, or pharmacology (HEW & LO, 2018). Flipping the classroom is a lecture style tailored to a variety of student learning styles, and utilizes prerecorded lectures, and participation in projects or discussions during class time. There are four main learning styles: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and reading/writing. Each style comes with their own strategies, but all have similar advantages, including the opportunity to learn in the best way for individual students. Flipping the classroom avoids the typical lecture, and implements activities that will engage students of all learning styles. Flipping the classroom enhances student education, increasing accountability for learning, and critical thinking. Funds utilized by Perkins V will be utilized to assure simulation in didactic courses are available to students, as well as outside typical class time to allow students to practice. This empirical research project shows results of implementing a flipped classroom, and the improvement of exam grades, final grades, and student participation and satisfaction.
