Pplicationa Lesson Planning: Needs Assessment and Learning Objectives

Through your two Application papers and Portfolio Assignment in this course, you will create a comprehensive teaching/learning plan (faculty in nursing). This should be a lesson you could implement in your current practice or in a position you hope to have in the future (for example, as faculty in an academic nursing program).

In this Application, you will describe your audience and learning topic, summarize results of a learning-needs assessment you have conducted, and create specific learning objectives for your proposed lesson. As noted in this weekas Discussion, you may design your lesson plan for an adult-learner group of your choicea patients, staff, nursing students, continuing-education nurses, and community populations, among others.

Begin by revising your needs assessment plan in light of feedback you received in this weekas Discussion. Then conduct the assessment with sample learners and/or through literature searches. With this information in mind, consider the outcomes you hope to achieve in the lesson, and formulate two learning objectives to accurately reflect these desired outcomes. At least one of these objectives must be behavioral. For example:

The student will perform a chemical abuse assessment. (behavioral)
The student will discuss feelings about people who abuse chemicals. (affective)
Draw on at least three appropriate sources of evidence to support your ideasa for example, core competency statements, professional guidelines, results of a needs assessment, and other kinds of data. You should refer to the section a?Development of Teaching Plansa? from the chapter a?Behavioral Objectivesa? (Bastable, 2007) regarding a framework for this lesson-planning process.

In a 5to 7-page paper, provide the following information about your proposed lesson plan, and include at least three sources of evidence for your ideas:

Part 1: Learning Needs Assessment

Identify the teaching/learning context for your lesson. Who are the learners? In what setting would the lesson occur, and how long would it last?
Briefly explain your method of assessing the knowledge/skill level and needs of these learners.
Summarize the results of your assessment and explain how you will incorporate this information in your lesson planning.
Part 2: Learning Objectives

Describe in general terms the content to be addressed through this lesson.
Is this proposed learning cognitive, psychomotor, or affective? Explain why.
Write two objectives (at least one of them behavioral) that accurately reflect the central learning of your proposed lesson. (Note: These objectives must be measurable in some way.)
Explain your rationale for these objectives and your choice of words. How will these objectives lead to the outcomes you identified with the help of the needs assessment?
Of the two objectives, which do you consider more important, and why?


Please make sure all the questions are answered, here is what is required.

Pplicationa Lesson Planning: Needs Assessment and Learning Objectives

We started out with giving teaching to parents. I would like to change my topic to teach adult nursing students a topic, maybe oral medication administration, or head to toe assessments, please consult with me on a topic that I can use in the future as a nursing teacher.

Application Evaluation Criteria Please answer all questions in full detail thank you
