Insights from the 2015 ABHES Conference
In order to better understand the challenges facing career college health care instructors and their students, Cengage Learning’s market research team conducted interviews with instructors at the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) conference in February 2015. Cengage Learning wanted to understand instructor needs and concerns, and discuss what they consider to be their most significant challenges.
A total of fourteen instructors across health care disciplines were interviewed. The research shows that instructors have difficulty engaging students and getting past their personal barriers. These barriers, which include home issues and poor academic backgrounds, are the biggest challenges most students face.
