Author'(s) Department(s)

Nursing (Stark campus)

Abstract

The intent of this project is to gain insight into student's perceptions of using unfolding case studies in the classroom and how these affect student learning. A literature review was performed in order to define what exactly an “unfolding case study” is and what outcomes have already been linked to unfolding cases studies. The PI designed unfolding case studies for each unit of content to be used in the nursing classroom, including innovative techniques such as patient monologues from the NLN’s ACES cases, and Lippincott’s Docucare to present the unfolding cases in a simulated electronic health record form. Students’ perceptions were measured via a brief survey with a Likert scale and student comments at the end of the semester. This study is still in data collection phase but preliminary results will be ready by the conference in October to be shared via a poster presentation.
