Today’s Textbook Reading: Fleming’s VARK Model

Today’s Textbook Readings:

Billings, D. & Halstead, J. A. (2012) Teaching in Nursing -A Guide for Faculty (4th ed.) p 23-24

Fleming’s model: suggests 4 categories: VARK, classify students into 4 different learning modes: Visual, Auditory, Read/write, and Kinesthetic, that reflect the experiences of the students. The VARK questions and results focus on the ways in which people like information to come to them and the ways in which they like to deliver their communication.

  • Visual learners: learn by looking at image, such as figures, graphics, videos, and other printed/ drawing information.
  • Auditory learners: learn by listening to information delivered, such as listening teachers’ lecture, class discussions, seminars, recorded lecture, and etc.
  • Read/write learners: learn by reading textbooks, notes, and other printed text information.
  • Kinesthetic learners: learning with hands on experiences.

The VARK tool was suggested by the NLN’s Certified Nurse Educator Preparation Workshops and Examination Information as one way that nurse educators might examine learning styles.
