Torturing Nurses with Data

Presenter 1
Kristi Thompson
University of Windsor

This session will describe two iterations of an effort create a quantitative research module for a Masters in Nursing research methods course at the University of Windsor. The first version involved a single three-hour class incorporating both a lecture and a hands-on practice session followed by an assignment to independently locate and analyze a dataset, with extensive support from the library. The second version was both more extensive and more structured, with a three-hour lecture, an assigned reading, a three-hour practice session and an analysis assignment using a pre-selected data set. This session will discuss what worked and what didn’t work and will include an analysis of feedback from an anonymous questionnaire filled out by the students following the second unit.
