Rutgers/FSIL partnership: Phase 1

  • Post baccalaureate certificate in nursing education given by RU used a blended onsite and online format.

  • Content focused on nursing education courses as well as instruction in English writing and comprehension.

  • Educational technology used enabled faculty in the US to deliver content to students in Haiti using video conferencing, lessons with the instructor’s voice, and collaborative discussions.

  • Education was provided by engaging in dialogues with students rather than giving monologues from faculty members.


Online and onsite program

Online and onsite program

Five onsite visits by several faculty members were made in the first year of the program.

Online interaction with FSIL students occurred using videoconferencing & online discussions when no faculty members were onsite.

Short presentations rather than lectures were given. Voice-over-power-point slides facilitated Haitian students’ understanding of the presentation.


Educational technology used to educate students

Educational technology used to educate students

Students are engaged through interactive exercises that demonstrate students’ ability to apply the material presented.

Students move ahead at their own pace.

Students have access to faculty to ask questions and discuss material.

Technology captures students’ performance—what was watched more than once & what mistakes students made, providing faculty resources for understanding students’ learning process.

Faculty can evaluate which strategies work the best.


Benefits of blended education onsite online

Benefits of blended education(onsite & online)

  • Asynchronous dialogues found to be self-reflective and more conducive to learning than synchronous and face-to-face dialogues.

  • Benefits attributed to the advantage of blended learning over entirely face-to-face.

  • Benefits are attributed to combining strategies in the blended education; i.e. additional learning time, additional learning materials, and additional opportunities for collaboration.
