In this course, we'll explore nursing informatics leadership as it relates to nursing informatics training and education. I'm Karen Monsen your faculty for this course. As you've seen through out this specialization, nursing informatics educators have played important roles in the nursing informatics specialties evolution and advancement. Both historically and in the present. As we consider nursing informatics training and education, we'll look back over our Minnesota nursing informatics leadership inventory profiles. And examine alignment with our preferred leading behaviors when we are training and educating others, in order to optimize our own experiences and the experiences of those we mentor, coach, teach, and lead. The course objectives are to describe relevant nursing informatics course development in clinical and academic settings. To understand similarities and differences in informatics training and education across settings. To describe informatics education and training needs for diverse participants with various experience levels and to enable development of appropriate training and education materials. To develop a prototype course syllabus and introductory recorded message. To apply learning about nurse informatics training and education in the simulated setting. And to describe the benefits of formal and informal mentoring for nursing informaticians to advance career opportunities and support the nursing informatics specialty. Recall that many nursing informatics pioneers taught and mentored others, leaving a rich legacy upon which today's nursing informatics leaders continue to build. Recall the wisdom shared by today's nursing informatics leaders, many of whom have devoted their careers to training and educating the next generation of nursing informaticians. In their interviews they emphasized that even if you do not plan to become a trainer or educator, we all have the responsibility to continue to foster the development of our colleagues and the nursing informatics specialty. There are five modules in this course. In Module 1, we will examine the who, what, when, where and why of nursing informatics training and education to set the stage for further in depth study. In Module 2, Leadership Cultures and Skills for Training and Educating Others, we will consider the leadership skills that may be leverage for successful training and education outcomes in various settings. In Module 3, Choosing Resources for Training and Educating Others, we note that nursing informatics education and training content or what we should be teaching about is scenario specific and will constantly change, especially, given the rapid changes in health informatics and technology. We'll explore some resources that are available to guide curriculum development for nursing informatics students across the continuum of educational levels. In Module 4, each student will be guided to develop specific core syllabus for a unique setting of your choice, including a course description, objectives and content for particular nursing informatics, competencies and audience. We will consider competency-based education and active learning strategies as fundamental components of this plan. Each student will develop and record an introductory message for their course. Students are encouraged to revise and re-record lectures to improve presentations skills and refine course content based on peer feedback and discussions. In Module 5, we discuss best practices in mentoring and coaching. And consider opportunities to engage in lifelong career mentorship. Mentor and coach, every single day, another nursing informatician. Eva Karp's words are powerful, and challenge us, as nursing informatics leaders, to embrace the notion of mentoring and coaching others within and outside of our paid roles, beyond the classroom or workplace, and throughout our careers. I'm delighted to share this course with you, as together we explore our nursing informatics leadership skills and roles in academia and beyond. Let's get started.
