ItemEvaluating student and faculty satisfaction with a pedagogical framework(2010) Salyers, Vince; Carter, Lorraine; Barrett, Penelope; Williams, LyndaMost schools of nursing utilize technology to deliver courses, and entire curricula, through a combination of face to face (f2f), web-enhanced, and fully online strategies. Challenges associated with course delivery may include geographic and technological barriers, lack of instructional design support, inconsistent, inadequate or unreliable support infrastructure, and varying degrees of faculty and student experiences with learning management systems. The purpose of this exploratory study was to evaluate student and faculty satisfaction with two courses structured using a pedagogical framework; identify advantages and disadvantages of the courses; and identify instructional design recommendations for implementation of the framework. Based on results from the study, there is evidence to support use of the ICARE framework in structuring quality, satisfying courses from both student and faculty perspectives. ItemHighly relevant mentoring (HRM) as a faculty development model for web-based instruction(2012) Carter, Lorraine; Salyers, Vince; Page, Aroha; Williams, Lynda; Albl, Liz; Hofsink, ClarenceThis paper describes a faculty development model called the highly relevant mentoring (HRM) model; the model includes a framework as well as some practical strategies for meeting the professional development needs of faculty who teach web-based courses. The paper further emphasizes the need for faculty and administrative buy-in for HRM and examines relevant theories that may be used to guide HRM in web-based teaching environments. Of note is that HRM was conceived by the instructional design staff who contributed to this paper before the concept of high impact mentoring appeared in the recent literature (2009). While the model is appropriate in various disciplines and professions, the examples and scenarios provided are drawn from a Canadian university’s experience of using HRM, in conjunction with a pedagogical approach called ICARE, in a variety of nursing courses and programs.
