In this continuing education course, nurse educators will enhance their knowledge of climate change and common vector-borne diseases associated with climate change in Canada to build climate change competencies among baccalaureate nursing students. There will be an opportunity to develop teaching and learning strategies related to climate change, which can be used for curriculum development.

This course is intended for early and mid-career faculty members working in educational settings where research and scholarship are expectations of their faculty positions. It may also be of interest to nursing education administrators in such settings who provide support and guidance to faculty members regarding their research and scholarship careers.  Participants will explore strategic approaches to the development of successful programs of nursing research, including managing competing career demands, project and time management, and supports necessary to sustain research success.

Welcome to "A Universal Course Designed for Learning Success"!

As post-secondary nursing education learner diversity has become the norm, it is essential that nurse educators in these settings create an inclusive learning environment for diverse learners to optimize their potential and success. An inclusive learning environment involves offering equitable opportunities for everyone to succeed. Learner success hinges on accessibility to course resources and the comprehension of this material. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a theoretical framework rooted in the neuroscience of learning and use of technology, which can be used by educators to guide the structural design of courses, assessments, and learning environments (Centre for Applied Special Technology [CAST], 2011). In this course, nurse educators will explore key concepts and principles associated with the UDL framework, while further establishing how these guidelines can be integrated into the proactive design of curriculum to support the success of diverse learner populations in post-secondary environments. 

This webinar series provides nurse educators with information, resources, and strategies that will assist in the development of interprofessional education (IPE) experiences for students. Participants will explore selected literature on the definitions and parameters of IPE. Participants will examine personal and institutional challenges, opportunities and supports for developing initiatives, courses, and programs that include meaningful IPE experiences utilizing existing resources.
