As part of the teaching plan you began in Week 3, this week you will create a 10-page paper (excluding the title page, references, and Appendices) considering a specific population and topic to be taught to the learners on a patient safety initiative from the IOM and QSEN competencies. This can be for a group of patients in a hospital setting, staff education, or a group of clients in a community setting (such as Planned Parenthood, adult education).
Lesson Planning and Teaching Strategies
In this section of the teaching plan, you are asked to research and discuss your selected teaching strategies taking into consideration the learning needs, learning styles, and cultural diversity of your target audience. Incorporate a variety of teaching strategies that includes innovative teaching strategies to promote an active learning environment. Integrate appropriate technology-based teaching strategies and evidence-based techniques into your teaching plan. In the Appendix, include the handouts that will be distributed and any other additional teaching aids.
