This installment of the Methodology Corner discusses the important role of research and quality improvement project reporting guidelines in the development of a field's evidence base. Several prominent guidelines, all with relevance to nursing education researchers, are described. Research and quality improvement reporting guidelines can be useful to researchers and quality improvement leaders long before the dissemination stage of a project and should be consulted from the earliest stages of a project. Consulting these guidelines earlier, rather than later, can increase the likelihood that studies and quality improvement reports will contribute meaningfully to the literature to which nurse educators look when making evidence-informed decisions...

There has been little attention given to teaching beliefs of graduate teaching assistants (GTAs), even though they represent the primary teaching workforce for undergraduate students in discussion and laboratory sections at many research universities. Secondary school education studies have shown that teaching beliefs are malleable and can be shaped by professional development, particularly for inexperienced teachers. This study characterized inexperienced GTAs' teaching beliefs about student learning and how they change with a science-specific pedagogy course that emphasized student learning...

Studying medicine at university requires hard work and motivation. The medical school curriculum is vast, and as well as being academically rigorous, also holds emotional challenges. This can predispose students to mental health issues, which include depression and suicidal thinking. Since these are significant issues, we feel it is important to highlight the reasons behind them, and the options available to students to deal with them.

Charged with making decisions to protect and enhance patient well-being, a nurse relies on nursing judgment to render effective patient care. Nursing judgment is the culmination of education, experience, and insight that allows nurses to execute the best action possible on behalf of patients. This concept analysis uses the Walker and Avant method to demonstrate the role of nursing judgment in assessments and interventions, delegation of tasks, and prioritization of care. Nurses, other health care collaborators, and recipients of health care should be aware of the role played by nursing judgment to improve patient care and the health care system...

BACKGROUND: Stereotype threat describes the apprehension individuals experience from the prospect of confirming negative self-relevant stereotypes. Due to their minority status, male nurses are believed to be susceptible to stereotype threat effects in the field of nursing. METHOD: One hundred eighty-three male nursing students were randomly assigned to one of three evaluative frames (patient management, empathy, or control) and tasked with completing an online patient simulation experiment...

The number of women entering medical school and careers in science is increasing; however, women remain the minority of those in senior faculty and leadership positions. Barriers contributing to the shortage of women in academics and academic leadership are numerous, including a shortage of role models and mentors. Thus, achieving equity in a timelier manner will require more than encouraging women to pursue these fields of study or waiting long enough for those in the pipelines to be promoted. Social media provides new ways to connect and augments traditional forms of communication...

Although counts of tweets citing academic papers are used as an informal indicator of interest, little is known about who tweets academic papers and who uses Twitter to find scholarly information. Without knowing this, it is difficult to draw useful conclusions from a publication being frequently tweeted. This study surveyed 1,912 users that have tweeted journal articles to ask about their scholarly-related Twitter uses. Almost half of the respondents (45%) did not work in academia, despite the sample probably being biased towards academics...

The flipped classroom (FC) pedagogy is becoming increasingly popular in medical education due to its appeal to the millennial learner and potential benefits in knowledge acquisition. Despite its popularity and effectiveness, the FC educational method is not without challenges. In this article, we identify and summarize several key papers relevant to medical educators interested in exploring the FC teaching methodology. The authors identified an extensive list of papers relevant to FC pedagogy via online discussions within the Academic Life in Emergency Medicine (ALiEM) Faculty Incubator...

AIM: The aim of this study was to report an analysis of the clinical learning environment concept. BACKGROUND: Nursing students are evaluated in clinical learning environments where skills and knowledge are applied to patient care. These environments affect achievement of learning outcomes, and have an impact on preparation for practice and student satisfaction with the nursing profession. Providing clarity of this concept for nursing education will assist in identifying antecedents, attributes and consequences affecting student transition to practice...

CONTEXT: The flipped classroom approach has garnered significant attention in health professions education, which has resulted in calls for curriculum-wide implementations of the model. However, research to support the development of evidence-based guidelines for large-scale flipped classroom implementations is lacking. OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to examine how students experience the flipped classroom model of learning in multiple courses within a single curriculum, as well as to identify specific elements of flipped learning that students perceive as beneficial or challenging...
