Affective Teaching in Nursing
Connecting to Feelings, Values, and Inner Awareness
by Dennis Ondrejka, PhD, RN, CNS
Paperback Book (232 Pages)
August 2013
While nursing education today offers copious amounts of information geared to test preparation, it does not adequately harness the intellectual and emotional intelligence of individual students-qualities that can greatly enrich the nursing profession. This expert resource for understanding the importance of affective teaching-what it is and how to incorporate it into the classroom-provides a plentiful array of affective teaching pedagogy and references. The text offers both new and traditional insights into the importance of linking intellectual and emotional intelligence in knowledge acquisition. It provides helpful strategies for nurse educators to enrich their teaching with affective teaching strategies, methods, and skills in the classroom.

Designed for use in masters and doctoral programs in nursing and health care education, the book espouses a paradigm that is embraced by leaders in education and major institutions. It thoroughly examines the theory, research, and practice informing affective teaching in nursing. It covers taxonomy, teaching infrastructure needs, affective teaching models, and assessment tools. The text identifies the risks and advantages of affective teaching, and how they have been addressed by a variety of nursing educators. It will be a valuable addition to the teaching arsenal of nurse educators who wish to go beyond the objective domain of teaching to explore the enriching possibilities of subjective knowing.
