CNDLS is pleased to announce the publication of an article in the January/February 2011 issue of Nurse Educator by Janet Russell (Associate Director for Science Programs and Instructional Technology, CNDLS), Mindy McWilliams (Assistant Director for Assessment, CNDLS), Laura Chasen (former Graduate Associate, CNDLS), and Jean Farley (NHS). The article, entitled "Using Clickers for Clinical Reasoning and Problem Solving," explored how the use of clickers with case-based questions "resulted in increased student engagement, attention, and participation in an introductory clinical nursing course. . . .  Findings suggest that nuanced discussion of all possible answers encouraged students to think more deeply about their initial answers and opened them up to new reasoning processes."
