1.) Hire well/ Train & Support. Language AND content experts (Nurses) are needed.

2.) Know the language demands of Nurses. http://www.celbancentre.ca/research.aspx

3.) Incorporate technology/web 2.0 tools carefully

4.) Connections are essential to success. (eLearning is NOT simply "reading" online!)

5.) Evolving Pedagogy - new tools, changes in society influence teaching/learning.

Pilot = test . Revise. Pilot = test. Revise. Repeat!

Today’s students have grown up in a world where technology is a natural part of their environment. Their expectation is that technology will be used where appropriate to help them learn, develop essential information and technology literacy skills, and master the technology fluency necessary in their specific subject domain.
Successful blended teaching and learning require a focus on what may best be done on campus, such as face-to-face interaction between students and instructors, and what may best be done online, such as providing flexibility and wide access to resources and experts. This requires a re-thinking of classroom layouts as more interaction takes place, involving the students, instructors, and outside experts who participate in-person or virtually. Teaching models for both classroom and online delivery need to be re-considered and re-calibrated in response to new technological capacities.
