Ellyn Arwood & Joaanna Kaakinen: Visual Teaching in an Auditory World

Today’s learners mirror societal change; 60-90% of the population thinks with mental visual language. Teaching strategies have not kept up with these changes. As a result more learners experience difficulty with higher order thinking skills. To address this problem, Dr. Kaakinen, a nurse educator, collaborated with Dr. Arwood, an educator with a language/learning backgrorund. The results of their multi-disciplinary collaboration included innovative teaching strategies designed for visual thinkers.
