  • These were the results from the first 3-learning style type inventoryAs you can see Visual and kinesthetic learners were in the majority of students.
  • The second inventory (note similarity)Results mirror previous inventory for faculty and staff.
  • Questions discussed with studentsDoes this surprise anyone? Makes sense when one considers the nature of this field. Do you think nursing favors these learning styles?How does this exhibit itself in your experiences?This created a great deal of engaged discussion among the students.
  • (Dille, 2007)Lets take a look at this video of the visual learner, what do you notice that might give us clues to this learning style?The students were very positive in their responses to these sample videos.
  • (Dille, 2007)
  • Approximately half of the students had a kinesthetic learning preference.Discuss our learning activities.(Dille, 2007)
  • Behavioral styles models have a long history. Many of you may remember hearing about Dr. Carl Jung’s Feeler/Intuitor, Thinker/Sensor model (Alessandra, n.d)I thought Diane would appreciate this.
  • One can see personality types represented by birds.Note range between Indirect/Direct and Supporting/ControllingIn the following diagram you will see the class plotted on a graph representing these behavioral types (Alessandra, n.d).
  • As you can see, there is quite a bit of range in the behavioral spectrum represents.This is the representation of the students’ behavioral styles distribution.
  • The faculty and staff are plotted along with the students. Faculty and staff are represented with initials.What do you all think? I wasn’t surprised at these results at all! Looking forward to hearing your impressions.
  • One can easily see the advantages to each of these style strengths.(Alessandra, n.d)Doves: Anna, Mary Ellen, Diane (who is also on the line with the Peacocks)Peacocks: Sandy and RobbinEagles: Marjorie and DawnNot an owl among us…
  • I discussed with the class how the interplay between these characteristics present in behaviors.(Alessandra, n.d: Morris, 2012)
  • (Alessandra, n.d: Morris, 2012)We discussed in class that this is about how one modifies their style in order to best work with others.
  • (Alessandra, n.d: Morris, 2012)
  • (Alessandra, n.d: Morris, 2012)
  • (Alessandra, n.d: Morris, 2012)
  • (Alessandra, n.d: Morris, 2012)
  • Now that we know more about the individual styles, here is the comprehensive graph again.
  • (Alessandra, n.d: Morris, 2012)These skills engendered a great deal of conversation among the students.
  • The students loved these pictures of themselves. I think these really served to highlight for them how exceptional, close, and collaborative their relationships with their classmates are.

    13. 13. The Four Styles: Doves: Relationship-Oriented Eagles: Results-Oriented Owls: Detail-Oriented Peacocks: Socially-Oriented
