The adult learner has been a wonderful and challenging teacher for me. I believe in student-centered learning (SCL) and welcome the active participant into the classroom. I want the adult learner involved in the teaching/learning process with me to feel empowered. The learning space is not always the traditional classroom and I am excited about that transition in nursing education. I embrace the learning environment whether it is the classroom, online, or in an actual or virtual clinical setting. I continue to seek out new information and technology that will enhance my skills in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains of learning.
