Who: Consultations are available for Educators in Nursing academia (faculty) and Nursing Professional Development Practitioners. You can be of any skill level to partake in a consultation--no matter how unfamiliar you are with the education technology platform, we can work through it together!
What: 1:1, private, personalized, Live, virtual consultation sessions. Consultation will be dedicated to identifying which platform(s) the learner wants to review/learn (this will be based on an intake form you will complete with your enrollment). You will be given a step-by-step walk through of the platform in addition to extra tips, pros and cons of each platform reviewed, strategies and best practices for the tools being reviewed within the designated time frame. I want my clients to walk out of these sessions with an increased knowledge base of the selected ed tech tool(s) and a willingness to take the next step and integrate it in their educational offerings.
When: Consultation sessions can be scheduled during available time slots. There will be time slots available throughout the day to allow for various time zones and work schedules.
Where: Anywhere! It's virtual so you can join me from the comfort of your home or office! Currently, the Zoom videoconference tool is what is integrated into the enrollment calendar but I am open to and comfortable using a number of other videoconferencing tools including Google Meet or Microsoft Teams if that is your preference.
Why: Educational technology tools are here to enhance our pedagogical presence. Now more than ever, our nurse learners need engagement and with all the social distancing measures in place, Nursing Education will not be the same. To learn about all these tech tools on your own can be challenging, frustrating and overwhelming. These consultation and coaching sessions are dedicated to you and as a fellow Nurse Educator, I not only understand the Nursing Education space (both academia and professional development) I also come with an expertise in educational tech tools and strategies-something you won't get from watching videos or your housewide IT department. The sessions can improve your own retention and the overall purposeful and powerful use of technology. I can take you to that next step, with concentrated consultations that will add to your already extensive toolkit of Educator capabilities and strengths!
