UAB SON Mini-Conference: Simulation and Technology in Nursing - March 3

The use of technology in nursing education and practice is ubiquitous. Distance accessible courses, live web conferencing, gamification, computer testing, and simulation are tools the SON uses to teach and engage our students every day. Selecting, using, and supporting these tools requires that faculty and administrators have technological knowledge and skills not previously required in nursing education.   This mini-conference will provide attendees with exposure to the latest information and best practices regarding development and implementation of a program of nursing and interprofessional simulation, evaluating students using simulation, providing support for high-quality distance accessible programs, strategies and curriculum requirements for nursing informatics education across the curriculum, and an example of gaming in undergraduate and graduate education. Conference faculty are nationally and internationally known for their work in distance education, nursing and interprofessional simulation, and nursing informatics. Please see the attached flyer for the conference agenda and list of conference faculty. The mini-con is from 12-4pm on the afternoon of March 3rd and the cost is only $50 per person. RSVP here.
