Abstract

Nursing education of the future will be characterized by diverse teaching methods. New modalities will be tested and used to meet constraints on both teachers and students. Parkinson and Parkinson report on the use of interactive television as a medium of education for nursing students studying pathophysiology. They compare this method to the more traditional teacher lecture method with interesting results. While students may prefer the human interaction, the learning results may be equivalent when the alternative medium is used.
