On the Shoulders of Giants: Building Innovation in Teaching Excellence
On the Shoulders of Giants is a phrase that dates back to the 16th century. We are lifted up by our predecessors so we can see ahead using their wisdom to grow wise. This year, in recognition of NLN leaders like Dr. Deborah Spunt, who led us to reform nursing education through simulation, the Spunt Lecture will focus on the impact simulation has had on building a culture of excellence in teaching. Dr. Sue Forneris will guide us in celebration of previous Spunt lecturers, leaders in simulation, and create a dialogue about the future role the NLN will take to transform teaching and learning, building on the extraordinary work of simulation’s pathfinders. We will grow wise together and collectively explore ways to co-create innovation in teaching excellence.
