NLN Technology Conference
The 5th NLN Technology Conference will take place from October 29 to 31, 2010 at Fairbanks Hall on the Indiana University Campus in Indianapolis. Mary Anne writes us:
“I know you will be inspired by our keynote speaker, Diane Skiba, as well our other distinguished technology experts: Diane Billings, Helen Connors, Janet Grady, and Pam Jeffries. Concurrent sessions cover a variety of topics including eICUs, eLearning, unfolding cases studies, using simulation for high stakes assessment, and social networking.
For those with a special interest in simulation, Fairbanks Hall is the home of a brand new state-of-the-art simulation multidisciplinary simulation center. We will be conducting tours of this center and the simulation/learning resources center at the Indiana University School of Nursing. Please visit http://www.nln.org/facultydevelopment/Conferences/Technology/index.htm for more information.
Also note that we are offering a workshop conducted by Pam Jeffries and Scott Engum on how to design interdisciplinary simulations. (http://www.nln.org/facultydevelopment/Workshops/InterdisciplinarySimulations/index.htm).
A second preconference event is designed for those who wish to explore using handheld devices, including the new iPAD, for classroom and clinical. (http://www.nln.org/facultydevelopment/Workshops/MobileTechnology/index.htm).
Celebrate Halloween with the technology experts and get current on rapidly evolving technology developments so you can prepare your students to function in today’s technology-rich health care environment.”
