Fostering Intrinsic Motivation in Students: Bernadette Waldron

Bernadette reflects on fostering intrinsic motivation of nursing students, through Active and Experiential Learning.  She discusses the use of Emotional Intelligence methodology to develop their professional skills within the sensitive world of nursing.

She discusses how she has changed her approach to teaching and learning from a traditional to a Constructivist method.

First Aid teaching in community schools allows the students to develop the necessary organisational, team work and communication skills required for employability in nursing.  This project uses peer to peer assessment, reflective learning and is an effective work skills environment for deep learning to take place.
