Aims

NYCNECT aims to transform teaching and learning in nursing and health professions education by:

  • Supporting the sharing and dissemination of expertise and resources in learner-centered instructional strategies through a multi-institution collaborative framework involving over 12 CUNY schools of nursing and health professions programs
  •  

  • Preparing CUNY health professions educators to use culturally competent simulated learning, informatics, and telehealth in their teaching
  •  

  • Demonstrating evidence-based education using technology, including the creation of learning environments that promote active, collaborative learning and knowledge creation that incorporate 21st century literacies (information, digital, visual)

 

By the completion of the NYCNECT faculty-staff development program, NYCNECT trainees will become proficient in the following areas:

  • Teaching with culturally competent simulation scenarios and running effective debriefing sessions with students
  •  

  • Improving instruction using innovative pedagogical and technological tools and strategies in informatics/Health IT, telehealth and mobile learning technologies
  •  

  • Serving as “Transformers” at their home institutions by designing, implementing, and evaluating an instructional project; and by championing the successful use of educational technology to improve student learning outcomes in their programs
