Miami Regionals E-Campus
2019 ITC Award for Excellence in E-Learning

Nursing Care of Older Adults (NSG 461), awarded the 2019 Outstanding Online Course by the Instructional Technology Council, was developed through a strong partnership with Miami Regionals nursing faculty, Karen Brown and E-Campus Instructional Designer, Brigid Naglich.

NSG 461 examines holistic nursing care by tackling sensitive subject matters that incorporate an empathy-based focus to humanize the elderly patient through a wide spectrum of difficult and sensitive topics such as; from Ageism, Transtheoretical Model of Change Sexual Function / Intimacy, Depression & Suicide in Later Life, Neglect, all the way through End of Life Care. The course design included innovative and interactive photography and ideography to create authentic learning experiences for nursing students that are not only informative but challenge critical thinking for professional nursing practitioners.

"Uniquely Miami" is the foundation of Miami Regionals E-Campus success where Miami Faculty partner with Miami E-Campus professionals to design intentional online student learning experiences that promote engagement and authentic learning that is relevant and impactful.

ITC Outstanding Online Course Criteria:

The course must be designed with a high level of interactivity, multimedia, communication, and a variety of instructional and course management strategies. These strategies must be replicable and assist an instructor to facilitate more effectively; continuously evaluate student performance and course quality; and provide an outstanding educational experience for the students. Information about the course will be gathered from the application and access to the course for verification and review will be used for the evaluation.
