Message From Chairperson Of SLTC 

 

 

     Christensen-Martin Dr Martin CHRISTENSEN
Chair of School Learning and Teaching Committee
Associate Professor & Associate Head (Postgraduate Education) 

Welcome to the platform of the Learning and Teaching Committee (SLTC) of the School of Nursing (SN).


The School of Nursing aspires to provide quality teaching programmes to achieve learning and teaching excellence. The SLTC functions to ensure, maintain, and improve the quality of teaching and learning within the School, and monitors the reviews of educational programmes and operations in the School on an annual basis. International standards on both the theory and execution of nursing education in our programmes are high.

Staff and students are of equal importance to the SLTC. The SLTC is to serve our teaching staff and students, as well as to lead the ongoing development of learning and teaching in the School. The committee focuses in achieving learning and teaching excellence for the benefit of our students and ensuring the quality of our teaching and programmes. Drawing on the collective wisdom of our teaching staff and embracing research-led teaching, strategies incorporating advanced technology-assisted approaches have been formulated to ensure the quality of learning and teaching for the benefit of our students.

SLTC strives to provide students with a supportive and positive teaching and learning environment. To achieve the goal for improving our students' learning outcomes and experiences, a Deputy Chair of the School's Teaching and Learning Committee and a Lead for Improving the Student Experience have been appointed. The mission of SN is to provide quality education to nurture new generations of professional nurses, who assume social responsibility for serving the needy. The School’s Programme Committees and Student/Staff Consultation Groups have played pivotal roles in gathering views from our students and teaching staff.

The School and the SLTC are determined to make the experience of our students during the course of their studies a priority. We are keen to positively and holistically improve our student experiences through various means. By sharing with students our values and passion for improving the student experience, the students will have a better understanding of how they are unique human beings and how to be future health care practitioners with the heart to serve their clients and the vision to lead.

Develop an innovative learning module for interprofessional simulated clinical learning (PI: Ms Ivy Wong)

[Abstract]

Effective communication among healthcare professionals in the care of patients is fundamental for quality care and patient safety. Interprofessional education (IPE) not only fosters respect among the health professionals, but also eliminates harmful stereotypes, and induces a patient-centered ethic in practice. Interprofessional simulation learning experiences are increasingly more common with a focus on enhancing communication and collaboration. The learning modules of interprofessional education will be developed based on the pilot result on 2016. Colleagues and students from the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, the Department of Applied Social Sciences and the University of Hong Kong were invited to participate in this project. The details are as follow:

  1. Theoretical input with 3-hour lecture (online materials) will be uploaded on Blackboard.
  2. Two Laboratory practice with debriefing for 4 case scenarios by using simulated healthcare setting will be conducted on December 2018.

[Deliverables]

  • Wong, Y.P. (2019, March 15) Develop an innovative learning module for interprofessional simulated clinical learning. Poster presented at International Conference on Innovation in Nursing Education and Patient Care, Hong Kong.
  • Wong, Y.P. (2019, April 16) Develop an innovative learning module for interprofessional simulated clinical learning. Seminar presented at School of Nursing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong.

[Impact Highlights]

If the learning module of IPE is developed, the concept of the IPE will become an essentail part in our cross-disciplinary simulated clinical learning, it will then be launched as an integrative clinical subject for FHSS students with clinical placement in the real clinical setting as the next phase.

Internationalising the Student Learning Experience: Overseas visit programmes to San Jose State University, USA for BSN & BSMHN students (PI: Dr Sau Fong Leung)

[Abstract]

Internationalisation has become increasingly important in nursing curriculum with the growing need for nurses to be internationally oriented and culturally competent healthcare professionals in workplaces around the world. With the funding support from a Teaching and Learning Grant, a 4-week programme was designed for 4 baccalaureate nursing students consisting of exchange activities with in-bound US students (n=14) from San José State University and an overseas visit to US universities and mental health settings. Post-trip reflection and consolidation show that the programme has enhanced students’ cross-cultural and professional learning, their appreciation of different nursing practices in United States and their understanding of the American mental health care system. The programme has laid the foundation for a continuous collaboration with San José State University in terms of student exchange and teaching.

[Impact Highlights]

The project has positive impact on students' approach of learning, personal growth and professional competence. Four students completed the overseas visit to US have achieved the intended objectives in understanding global nursing, participation in cross-cultural and professional learning, appreciation of different nursing practices in United States and development of cultural competence of care. Moreover, an online learning module was created from the learning resources collected and produced in the overseas visit, and it was incorporated into a mental health subject SN2704 which was well received by a majority of 111 students in semester 1 of 2017-2018 academic year. The online learning module has enriched students' learning experience from local to global mental health context and enhanced their cross-cultural and professional competence. The project has created a potential to enhance the internationalization of a mental health subject in the nursing curriculum and more collaboration with overseas institutions in student exchange and teaching.

Large Equipment Fund for Teaching: CAE Healthcare HPS-010 Human Patient Simulator

[Abstract]

The Large equipment fund attained for this project was for the purchase of the CAE Healthcare HPS 465 Human Patient Simulator (HPS) to replace the old model that has been used for over 10 years. Additional funding was received from the school of Nursing to renovate the laboratory with the new equipment installed. The laboratory was under renovation from May and over the summer and has recently been reopened in 2017-2018 academic year. This intensive care patient simulator care model is the only physiological based with pre-configured simulated clinical experiences to be used by students at the School of Nursing.

[Deliverables]

Twenty clinical track staff and lecturers of nursing subjects from the school attended the training on the use of this simulator. Faculty member from Rehabilitation Sciences were also invited to join the training sessions. Both local and overseas training were completed in this year and the HPS was in full operation during the semester. All undergraduate students have the opportunity to use the HPS as part of their simulated clinical experiences. Inter-professional education was piloted with great success and received a Teaching and Learning Grant for the development of a new teaching module for students of allied health and nursing professions.

[Impact Highlights]

The simulated clinical experiences have enriched the students’ learning and were considered as one of the major learning and teaching strategies in the preparation of professional nurses. Students’ learning experiences are continued being facilitated with the adoption of the new HPS and case simulation.
