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.”
