Introducing tools for Active Learning!

Tired of quiet expressionless responses? Would you like to engage your students in thought provoking scenarios?

We have designed products to promote the development of Creative and Critical Thinking in Nursing, EMT/Paramedic and Surgical Technology. We take a real life “What would you do if…” approach to learning. Students are encouraged to use text books, drug guides, policy and procedure manuals and peer guidance to work through these problem based learning scenarios.

The innovative critical thinking in Nursing, EMT/Paramedic and Surgical Technology teaching tools provide direction for faculty to assist in student engagement and active participation in skills and discussions. Creativity is included in each product allowing the students to provide thoughtful responses. Educators can evaluate student understanding of simple and complex concepts.
