Duke University School of Nursing’s Institute for Educational Excellence will host the 8th annual Pursuing Radical Transformation in Nursing Education Conference March 22 and 23. This year’s theme is “The Science of Learning.”
The keynote speaker is Dr. James Lang. He is a professor of English and the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College in Worcester, MA.
Lang will present “Small Teaching” based on his book by the same name on March 22 at 1 p.m., followed by innovative and though-provoking sessions by educators from across the country.
This year, the conference broadened its scope of topics to reach all health professions educators, with the hopes of stimulating deep discussions and innovative ideas across and between professions. This conference features internationally-known experts in education, as well as educators from disciplines other than nursing and it provides extended opportunities for dialogue about emerging issues and innovations in education.
