Abstract

Abstract A survey of lecturers ( n = 47) and students ( n = 110) was undertaken to explore their preferred teaching strategies, using a questionnaire based on Heron's (1977) Dimensions of Facilitator Styles (Human potential research project, University of Surrey, Guildford). Overall it was found that the students tended to prefer a teacher-centred approach to teaching, whilst the lecturers preferred a student-centred approach. These findings are discussed in the light of current educational trends in the nursing profession.
