7th National Conference on Radical Transformation in Nursing Education

On March 30 and 31, 2017, the Duke University School of Nursing will host its seventh annual conference focusing on the pursuit of radical transformation in nursing education. The particular focus for this year’s conference is Promoting Deeper Learning for Students and Faculty: Seven Practical Research Based Strategies for Radical Transformation Worth Pursuing.

The conference will kick off on the afternoon of March 30 with an insightful keynote presentation by  Dr. Thomas Anthony Angelo, professor, Educational Innovation & Research at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He has directed six university educational development centers — four of which he founded — and twice served as an associate provost. He has also consulted on teaching, learning, assessment and curriculum design for more than 250 educational institutions and 65 associations and organizations. Dr. Angelo has delivered more than 90 higher education conference keynote addresses and has authored or coauthored five books and more than 35 articles and chapters. His most successful publication, "Classroom Assessment Techniques: A Handbook for College Teachers," second edition, coauthored with K. Patricia Cross, has more than 100,000 copies in print.

The Radical Transformation conference will continue on the morning of March 31 with numerous concurrent sessions where attendees will have the opportunity to learn from and dialogue with nurse educators who are implementing innovative teaching and evaluation methods and/or who have conducted research related to teaching and learning.    

On the afternoon of April 1, individuals will have the opportunity to participate in an optional, four-hour post-conference workshop that promises to be engaging and fun!
