YANCEN TINOCO, Luz Marina et al. Education strategies used by the teacher of the Nursing Program in a University in the city of Barranquilla (Colombia) versus the student's learning styles in this Program. Salud, Barranquilla [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.3, pp.405-416. ISSN 0120-5552.

Objective: to establish the use of learning styles of the students, by professors of the nursing program, at the moment they establish the educational strategies. Materials and methods: cross-sectional study. We took a sample of 56 teachers and 199 students, ages 18 and older, from first to eight semester of the Nursing Program in a University in the city of Barranquilla. Results: 36.7% of the students have a Reflexive learning style. 80.4% of the teachers are in agreement that they have knowledge about learning styles. However, the teachers have difficulties to identify the learning style of their students. The frequently used educational strategy has been clinical cases with 23.2%. Also, 77.7% of the teachers use other kinds of educational strategy. Conclusion: The educational strategies used by the teachers are not identical to the learning style of the students. The majority of the teachers develop their classes based on clinical cases which favor principally students with an active learning style; nevertheless the style that prevails in the nursing program is reflexive one. The previous finds might impede the development of the process of teaching - learning of the students of the program.
