Nursing faculty members Susan Gallagher-Lepak and Janet Reilly, in collaboration with Dr. Cheryl M. Killion from Case Western Reserve University, published an article titled, Are Virtual Classrooms Colorblind? The article explains that E-learning provides education opportunities for all students and is increasingly more visible in nursing education. Issues on availability to students, usage, and quality of E-learning are also argued. Examination of these issues, along with reflection on the extent to which culture has been integrated into online learning, are discussed. The article also explains the format and design of E-learning that have historically been most successful.
Are Virtual Classrooms Colorblind? is available now in the March 15, 2015 issue of online Journal of Professional Nursing. It is scheduled for publication in the July-August 2015 issue of the Journal of Professional Nursing (hard copy journal).
