Values-Based Teacher

The course is designed to help nurses or midwives who have either taken or are planning to take the IICN courses in order to teach others, to have an understanding of the fundamentals of Christian values in teaching and learning.

Basic strategies and principles will be taught to enable those having little or no experience in formal teaching to develop a level of confidence and competence in teaching others. It will likewise be of value to experienced teachers as the course incorporates the art of teaching like Jesus and integrating the Christian values affirmed by NCFI.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop Christian Values in the teaching and practice of NCFI-IICN courses and programs.
  • Enable learning through values-led processes so that nurses and midwives are renewed and transformed.
  • Role model styles of teaching that provide a moral and spiritual compass for participants taking the course.
  • Use evidence-based approach to teaching and learning strategies.

Learning Strategies

The course is designed to be interactive, using strategies such as role modeling, role play, and small and large group discussions.
