Faculty Q&A

Abstract

Send in your questions for Faculty Q&A!

We want your questions not only about issues related to how to teach and instructional strategies, but also about other issues faced by faculty (both new and established). Here’s an example:

“I was shocked to have a student accuse me of sexism. The student is male and says there is an inherent bias against male students, as I have answered questions posed to me by female students when we were in the change room preparing for a clinical shift. How can I guard against this type of unintentional problem in the future?”

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Questions need to be short and, preferably, include a specific scenario or examples.
  2. Submit questions that address practical issues faced by faculty and can be answered in a few paragraphs (see example above).
  3. Avoid broad questions that would require an entire article to answer.
  4. E-mail your questions, along with your full name and credentials, to Karen G. Stanwood, ELS, Executive Editor, at kstanwood@slackinc.com.

EXCERPT

My program requires an annual teaching portfolio, but the guidelines are very brief. What should I include, and what should I really expand on?

What are some tips for facilitating online learning?

What steps can I take to ensure the security of teacher-made examinations?

Politics are a part of every work environment. Moreover, nurse educators who have been in their position for a long time can be territorial. What are some strategies faculty, either as nurse educator students or as new faculty, can use that recognize the political aspects of the educational environment?
