Student-Centered Guides: Facilitating Learners' Input into Undergraduate Education

Jennifer B. Drexler, PhD(c), RN, CCRN
University of New Mexico College of Nursing

Developing a student centered learning environment is a challenge for even the most seasoned faculty. Professor Jennifer Drexler has developed a strategy to facilitate students developing a self-directed guide to prepare for assignments and exams. Learning from her mentor Dr. Jean Foret Giddens, Jennifer uses a conceptual approach to develop critical thinking skills through student self-assessment and application of learning. Her strategy elicits outstanding feedback from students who rate it "super" meaningful as a learning tool.

Professor Drexler is currently a faculty clinical educator at the University of New Mexico, College of Nursing. She is pursuing her PhD at New Mexico State University focusing on student engagement and teaching effectiveness. Jennifer has a Masters in Nursing Education and a post-master certificate in Nursing Administration. Her areas of interest also include program evaluation and development, faculty development, and continuous learning. Jennifer's clinical background is in adult acute critical care.

Professor Drexler is willing to share examples of the assignments she uses to promote active learning and student accountability. She provides her email address encouraging the audience to contact her. If this strategy works with a topic such as pathophysiology, just think how it can be applied across the curriculum.
