Students’ Perception on Effectiveness of Teaching Strategies in Select Science Nursing Courses

Leo Dizon



The study aimed to determine the students' perceptions of the effectiveness of teaching strategies used in select Microbiology and Parasitology classes. 229 third-year nursing students participated in the study. A descriptive correlational research design was used to identify the most common and least observed teaching strategies based on students' observations. Also, the association of the students' perception of the effectiveness of the strategies with their final course performance was tested. The identified top three teaching styles were reporting (66.8%), lecture (62.8%), and videotapes/film viewing (59.4%). The result of the study showed that the teaching strategies employed whether perceived effective or not, have no bearing on the final grades of the students.
