Partners The NEAT Project

In an effort to contribute to high quality, cost-effective, graduate level nursing education, a group of inter-institutional partners worked together to identify common teaching and learning challenges in distance health care education. An important goal of the project was to create learning objects and interactive case studies that are applicable across courses, contexts, and educational levels. The partners piloted the learning objects and case studies in their own programs and facilitated the dissemination and adoption by others. In order to do this in a cost-effective, quality manner, four types of teams collaborate on meeting the following objectives:

Objective 1: Collaboratively identify teaching and learning challenges common in multiple nursing education contexts, and design, develop, and pilot both learning objects and case studies to address these challenges.

Objective 2: Design, develop, and pilot a virtual guide on designing online higher education courses with learning objects to facilitate the subsequent use of the sharable content objects and case studies by other faculty and programs.

Objective 3: Identify, design, and implement innovative strategies for dissemination and enhanced use of learning objects and case studies.

Objective 4: Document and assess collaborative strategies to develop and disseminate learning objects and case studies for the purpose of addressing common teaching and learning challenges in distance health care education.

The learning objects, and other learning tools, were conceived and designed by a single content expert or group of experts with a common educational purpose, with the hope that the objects will be useful for others. The NEAT project's partners from institutions across the country, public and private, and of varying sizes and degrees, collaborated to identify, design, and develop learning objects and case studies to address common educational challenges, thereby ensuring the production of useful teaching and learning tools that apply across courses, contexts, and educational levels. We hope this unique collaboration serves as a model for developing and sharing educational resources.
