ESSENTIAL ADVANTAGES OF LESSON PLANS FOR NURSE EDUCATORS [INFOGRAPHIC]
4 WAYS LESSON PLANS HELP
Lesson plans help educators clarify:
- Objectives for the class period
- Activities designed to meet class goals (for active or “flipped” learning, some of these happen outside of class)
- The sequence and duration of the activities
- Resources required for the class period.
3 MAJOR BENEFITS OF LESSON PLANS
Lesson plans can serve as:
- Guides during class
- A resource for the next person who teaches the course (or a substitute teacher)
- A historical document for teacher review and accreditation.
The combination of lesson plans with simulation — as found in sim options such as Real Life Clinical Reasoning — creates an all-in-one resource for effective active learning.
Real Life encourages critical thinking, clinical decision making, and clinical judgment. To learn more, visit our Real Life solutions page.
