The 2023-2024 Lunch and Learn Series, Presented by CASN’s Research & Scholarship Committee


“Lunch and learns” are a popular tool in academia to encourage scholarship. Faculty members come together during their lunch hour to share their work and to network. CASN’s webinar series, presented by the Research and Scholarship Committee, aims to recreate the collegial feel of the ‘lunch and learn’ and is intended to serve as inspiration and a networking opportunity. Nursing faculty from across the country present on a scholarship project and discuss methodologies, successes or challenges they have encountered in their work.

During the past year, we have heard much about the impact of machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data, so the theme for the 2023-2024 series is “Use of machine learning, artificial intelligences and big data: Implications for nursing research and education”.
