Begin by reviewing the Core Competencies , which can be downloaded from the NLN website. Now reflect on how the new NLN focus on the role of the facilitator compares to your own experience and your own beliefs about your role as a teacher. The following questions can be used as a guide.
•How does NLN describe the role of facilitator?
•How does this align with the theories on how individuals learn?
•Why are core competencies important for the nurse educator?

To use the Blackboard journal tool, open the journal, located on the Table of Contents. You just type in your ideas and then click submit. You can add attachments, and images as you feel necessary. This is a private journal, where only you and your instructor have access. During the course, you will be asked to share some of the activities that will support you and your classmates’ learning and future teaching. However, the sharing will be done in discussion areas. The journal accounts for 10% of your overall grade and is graded midterm and final.
