Competency Based Education: Beginning with the Learner
In this session, participants receive an overview of the history and philosophical underpinnings of competency-based education (CBE). Contemporary implementation of CBE in health professions education is discussed, and a case for moving to competency-based education in nursing is made. Educational assumptions, principles, definitions, and outcomes of CBE are outlined. The application of CBE principles to create learner-centered assessments in nursing education are explored. The session concludes with a review of the implications of competency-based education for faculty responsibilities and development.

Preparing Nurses to Thrive and Lead in a Technology and Data Rich Environment
Nurses work in technology rich environments and must make decisions based on data and information using informatics processes. To optimally use the information and communication technologies to care for patients, consumers, and populations, nurses must know best practices for using technologies and how to use data to drive decision making. This session provides guidance on informatics and information technology required of all nurses along with teaching strategies for faculty.
Speaker: Marisa Wilson, DNSc, RN, Associate Professor, Interim Department Chair: Family, Community and Health Systems Leadership Pathway, and Director, Specialty Track Coordinator, MSN Nursing Informatics, School of Nursing, The University of Alabama Birmingham, AL
