Abstract

The Spring 2020 semester marked the first time, Melissa Hrebenik, an Instructor in the Faculty of Nursing, taught CNUR 301, Leadership and Influencing Change at the University of Regina. This was also the first time Hrebenik used an open textbook in her class, and if she has anything to say about it - it won't be the last.

Amidst the immediate demands caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to deliver all courses remotely, Hrebenik and her colleagues at the U of R and Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Regina and Saskatoon quickly pulled together to condense the 12-week nursing leadership course into six weeks and bring the course to life - virtually.
