Abstract

A learning strategy in 2014/2015 involved students working in groups to create a poster for module NUR371 in support of a Health Promotion Resource developed for module NUR372. A poster exhibition afforded students opportunity to display and present the posters and public health resources. In 2014/2015 academic year, the modules teams for two modules: NUR 371 Interprofessional and Collaborative Working and NUR372 Promoting Health and Wellbeing, developed an integrated learning strategy to maximise student engagement in active and meaningful learning. The strategy developed was that students working in groups would create a poster (for NUR371) in support of a Health Promotion Resource developed for NUR372. A further enhancement strategy was an increased use of clinical practice colleagues (the majority being student teachers), British Red Cross, Public Health Agency and the military to support learning.The health promotion resources that the students developed were displayed at the Poster Exhibition held 9 June 2015. Each student group delivered an oral presentation to an audience of peers, School of Nursing academic staff, members of Institute of Nursing and Health Research, clinical practice colleagues, staff from NW regional college, PSNI and British Red Cross.The review process comprised:•Development of an expert and independent adjudication panel to judge the quality of the posters; •A student survey to ascertain student perspectives about the integrated learning and teaching strategy. •Research to evaluate the effectiveness of the poster development workshops on adult nursing students’ perceptions about team working. The learning strategy was positively appraised.
