Abstract

By knowing how students process information, educators can get them to notice what is being taught so that they learn as much as possible. Teachers can use this information to change their lessons from lecture and note-taking instruction to active involvement that enhances students' comprehension. The purpose of this article is to examine two major styles of information processing, to identify global and analytic preferences and teaching strategies, and to illustrate how these strategies were applied in a baccalaureate nursing course.
