AS EARLY AS 1937, THE National League for Nursing specified that nurses are fundamentally teachers.1 We routinely teach parents, families, students, novice nurses, and each other. Nurses are also innovators and often devise creative strategies for relaying information. This column contains a compendium of creative teaching ideas and tools from nurse educators and bedside nurses from around the U.S. Several of the ideas presented in this column were shared by nurses attending a preconference on teaching strategies at the 10th National Neonatal Nurses conference in Savannah, Georgia, last fall. Many of the strategies provide learning activities that appeal to visual, auditory, read/write, and/or kinesthetic learning preferences.2 Appealing to learning preferences, providing interactive learning, and stimulating multiple senses are important issues to consider when planning educational activities. For example, research has demonstrated that involving more senses during learning creates more memory pathways, increasing the likelihood of later recall of the information.3
