This study examined a delegation content-focused multimodal instructional design based on constructivism and andragogy. These new teaching strategies were offered in a professional concepts course offered on-line during the final semester before graduation of an associates of nursing program. This study found supporting evidence that this pedagogical framework is effective in delivering essential delegation concepts and skills in an on-line course and contributing to student self-efficacy related to delegation abilities.
