Keynote: Not goldilocks and the three bears: Producing quality video for skill and knowledge development
Time : 09:30-10:10
Dr Cathy Dickson has extensive experience in teaching in the online environment and is committed to providing a quality learning experience for her students. As Head of Program for a post graduate suite of courses in child and family health Cathy leads a team of colleagues who design an engaging and active learning environment that has proven student satisfaction outcomes.
Since the early 1980s the use of video in nurse education has become ubiquitous. Certainly the move towards online education and the use of mobile technology to learn anywhere anytime, has urged nurse educators to seek innovative and engaging ways to assist their students develop knowledge and skills. Skills practice videos allow for students to view and review the skill at their own pace and drill down to the minutia by pausing when required. With the number of nursing skill based videos available on free video sharing websites such as YouTube there is a vast array to choose from. However, the purpose, quality and authentic learning of what is on offer might not meet course learning outcomes. The benefit of designing and producing a custom made video is that the three domains of learning (cognitive, affective and psychomotor) can be addressed and that alignment to the unit learning outcomes is realized. What nurse educators need is a best practice guide to developing quality video for learning. This presentation will follow the preproduction, production and post production journey of the development of a child oral health skill video for post graduate nursing students from a best practice perspective.
