We often shy away from using alternative teaching methods when working in adult education for fear of sounding juvenile. However, I ask you to think back to the last conference you were at. Did you appreciate the long lecture-style presentations or did you remember the presentations that used interactive activities, songs and/or games? We've been to dozens of conferences and find that while lecture style presentations are often informative, the presentations that get attendees talking are the ones that have the post variety and activity.
If you've read this blog in the past, you know we love sharing information from other vendors we meet at conferences. Whether it's an amazing moisturizer that lasts handwash after handwash or a book full of sing-songy memorization tools, we love things that make our lives (and our future nurses' education) better.
