All pre-licensure BSN students will have some coursework in traditional classrooms. All classrooms in Flagstaff and at statewide sites are equipped with smart projectors, computers, and DVD players. This technology allows for electronic projection of slides, movies, and the internet. This technology lets faculty spend more time on content and student interaction. Our classrooms provide the students with experience using multimedia approaches to presentation, preparing them well for professional communication in various real-world settings.
The School of Nursing uses online courses as part of the coursework to promote learning and to help develop technology skills for the nursing workforce. Rather than gathering in a traditional classroom, students meet online from many locations and interact asynchronously with each other and the course instructor. Using NAU’s BbLearn platform, students and faculty discuss, debate, and actively participate in course subjects. Students are able to access all course materials, including library materials.
Some courses are taught completely online, and other courses use a blend of instructional approaches. Regardless of the instructional approach, online environments exist for all courses, enabling faculty to provide students with internet access to materials and other online learning tools.
