The aim of the study was to explore and describe the best available literature on evidence-based teaching strategies that can be used by nurse educators.
Evidence-based teaching strategies in nursing education are fundamental to promote an in-depth understanding of information. Although some teaching strategies for nurse educators were identified, no integrative literature review was found summarizing the best teaching strategies for nurse educators.
Integrative literature review.
Sixteen studies were included encompassing eight teaching strategies (e-learning, concept mapping, Internet-based learning, web-based learning, gaming, problem-based learning, case studies, and evidence-based learning). Of these, three (concept mapping, Internet-based learning, and evidence-based learning) significantly increased student knowledge.
All teaching strategies increased knowledge in some way, indicating that faculties should use a variety of teaching strategies. However, more research is needed to compare the impact of a variety of teaching strategies and the best use of different teaching strategies.
