Interim Report 2015: Content strategy for the teaching and learning materials to support sustainability literacy and competency in Nursing

Output O4: Content strategy for the teaching and learning materials to support sustainability literacy and competency in Nursing

Aim

To test and evaluate the learning materials in the context of the nursing curricula in the partner and Stakeholder countries and develop content strategy for NurSusTOOLKIT

Objectives

  • To deliver a range of the teaching and learning materials to student nurses
  • To evaluate acceptability of the teaching and learning materials to student nurses and nurse educators
  • To produce the content strategy for NurSusTOOLKIT

Process

The first set of learning materials [A] will be provided by Activity 3 in month 16. They will be delivered to and evaluated by nursing students, health professionals and nurse educators in the partner organisations (Plymouth, Esslingen, Jaen) and Stakeholder organisations. Following delivery of the teaching materials, students’ sustainability literacy and competency will be assessed for each aspect of the literacy framework developed thus far.

An evaluation framework for the learning materials has been developed and agreed. Results will be fed back into the development process for further teaching and learning materials (content) in Activity 3 (learning materials [B])) and to support the NurSusTOOLKIT development (Activity 5). Technical expertise will be involved in this stage to develop ideas for the TOOLKIT and a draft specification will be developed (Activity 5).

Findings and action

After a literature review made on evaluation for teaching and learning materials, it will use a survey for evaluating the teaching and learning materials, which has been published by the Complutense University of Madrid. The author (Ana Mª Fernandez-Pampillón*) informs us that the tool has been tested for efficiency, usability and reliability. This tool is distributed with Creative Commons.

NurSus Spanish Team has elaborated three “Application profiles from the COdA tool to assess educational materials by different users: students, teachers that use the materials in class and nurses professionals. These profiles and instruments will be validated by AENOR (Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification) for we can use surveys with quality enough.
