Learning how to teach students

  1. Hi I am a nurse that has recently added the task of teaching LVN students their clinical skills. In addition I am also tutoring them through theory. I find that many of the student feel that they already know the material being presented and shut off during lectures. Any ideas on how to get these students to realize that even material that they feel they know should be reviewed. These student failed their pharm exams and cardiology exam. They do well in clinical and put alot of effort into it.

    What about a Jeopardy-style game to make it a little more fun? Or doing case studies - try more of a problem-based-learning approach. I went to a school that did a mix of traditional lecture and small group PBL, and PBL can work better for some students.
