Hey, I'm Martha.
I created this kit.
From my first 3-hour lecture, I knew I wanted to teach differently. I came across active learning and have slowly built it into every class and clinical that I teach.
But as busy instructors, it's not always easy to find the time or creative energy to develop and build engaging activities. So, I want to give nursing educators the tools to quickly and easily implement active learning in their classrooms. And I feel case studies, presented as escape rooms, are some of the most fun!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is included with this kit?
All of the pieces for you to create an engaging activity around the management of type 2 diabetes. Check out the video HERE to see a walk-through of the kit and puzzles.
Is this an appropriate level for fundamentals students?
This kit is most appropriate for students in an adult theory course. While these topics are introduced in fundamentals, the kit asks them to apply their knowledge to a clinical situation, which may be beyond the level of some fundamentals students. Please watch the video HERE for a complete walk-through to see if the topics are appropriate for your students.
Do you have a refund policy?
If you are not satisfied with the kit for any reason or if once you receive it, you feel it is too easy/hard for your level of students, you can return it to me within 30 days.
How long does it take?
This activity will take anywhere from 30-45 minutes for groups of students to complete. With a strong debriefing session at the end, it could take 60+ minutes.
How do the online puzzles work?
The kit is a beautiful blend of interacting with real objects and online puzzles. To begin the case study, students scan a QR code which gives them instructions on how to set up the kit. The website provides the storyline and instructions about which pieces of the kit to use and when. There are also some locks that are solved online. Students will need a phone to interact with this kit.
What concepts are covered?
Through an interesting story, students must first identify concerning assessment findings as well as review a medication administration record for red flags. Next, students will uncover the patient's meals through a review of pathophysiology and pharmacology in type 2 diabetes. Then, students will do insulin dosing based on carbohydrate counts and a sliding scale. Finally, the patient has a hypoglycemic episode in which they must recognize the assessment findings and intervene appropriately.
