Using a learning log to support students understanding and engagement within a research module
Kerin, Marie; Doody, Owen
Evidenced-based practice research is a common phrase in discussions regarding patient care. As a profession nursing/midwifery has a responsibility to educate their students with a primary focus on research based practice. Within education assessment is a significant feature which influences, what and how students decide to learn and generally learning is dependent on the quality of assessment. One method that has become popular to support learning and assessment is the use of a learning log. This article presents the use of a learning log as a learning and assessment process for undergraduate nursing and midwifery students and presents a student and module leader reflective comments. The use of a learning log was driven by the educators desire to be innovative when delivering a research module to students who often hold the view that research is a difficult and undesirable subject to study.
