BLENDED LEARNING METHODOLOGIES FOR CONNECTING NURSING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS WITH THEIR PROFESSIONAL CONTEXTS

M.J. Hernández-Serrano, G. Parra-Nieto

University of Salamanca (SPAIN)
Emerging teaching practices begin to confirm us that undergraduate student’s motivation to learn depends on the use of a methodology capable of activating the students’ participation. The European Higher Education Area (EHEA) also demands new methodologies, via the use of the technologies to get meaningful the learning process. The connection with the future professional contexts still remains a key target in the competences acquisition in the student’s syllabus. In this framework, and through the use of blended-learning methodologies, this paper aims to connect Nursing Undergraduate students with the professional contexts, in this case, a kindergarten teacher and his classroom of pupils.
A sample of 99 undergraduate students of the Faculty of Education of Salamanca and the University School of Education of Zamora have participated in this experience of teaching innovation and improvement, via the project: “Approximation of realities and school environments through the praxis and promotion of active methods of teaching and learning”.
The project involved a variety of activities based on blended learning methodologies, with the use of different Information and Communication Technologies (LSM Platform, Youtube Channels, VideoInterviews, Whorkshops, etc.).
Results were very positive in terms of three areas of improvement: motivation and participation, professional identification and impact on teaching. Among the main findings we highlight the development of innovative teaching methods which led to the transfer of competences achieving by the EHE.
