This session discusses the process of providing a structured development program for faculty to implement student-centered learning strategies in a college of nursing.  A call to change our teaching and learning practices in nursing comes from healthcare leaders who see the complicated healthcare environment (National Academies, 2010; Benner, et al, 2010). Also, our expected result of teaching and learning in nursing has evolved to include clinical reasoning, situated learning, and civic professionalism (Benner, et al, 2010). Higher education leaders recommend reconsidering the ideas of learning and student evaluation of learning (Bass, 2012; Bain, 2004).

Faculty are expected to manage the classroom and are responsible for learning outcomes. Faculty tend to be subject matter experts, but may not have the same expertise in delivery or facilitation of content.  Developing new ways of instruction and classroom management requires preparation and support.  This program is called Master Instruction and was developed to support faculty to conduct class in a student- centered approach.  A discussion of the process used to prepare faculty for a student-centered focus learning environment and the roll out to faculty in a college of nursing will be the focus of this session.
