Individualized Learning Plans for Learners
Educational Development Workshop for nurse educators presented by the Office of Curriculum and Educational Development.
An individualized learning plan (ILP) is a personal learning ‘contract’ that a resident develops based on their own reflection and self-assessment of the goals they want to attain over time. An ILP represents an opportunity for residents to reflect on your personal educational goals, as well as articulate, plan, track, and monitor your progress through your training program. In this course, we will discuss the components of an ILP and how educators can facilitate the ILP process by helping residents create SMART goals and providing guidance through regular feedback and monitoring.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Recognize the importance of ILPs in promoting self-directed and lifelong learning
2. Identify the unique needs of adult learners
3. Describe the components of an effective ILP
4. Discuss how to implement ILPs with their resident
Nursing Learning Outcome:
On completion of the activity, registered nurses will report increased confidence in describing the importance of, components of, and implementation of an individualized learning plan, and the unique needs of adult learners. They will identify at least one new learning that they intend to apply to their practice.
