Teaching & Leaning and Teaching Behaviors

Teaching and learning are described i the tern of scientific view and some teaching behaviors used in nursing  education.

Teaching Behaviors

    Teaching is a social phenomenon where learning is a psychological phenomenon. Teaching is a system of actions designed and intended to achieve learning. Learning is a change in the behavior of individuals as a result of experience. It is very difficult to define teaching as a set of actions based on models of teaching behavior, they are appropriate for different types of situations such as form of government, form of society and social philosophy. This teaching behavior can be roughly classified as

• Authoritarian teaching behavior
• Democratic teaching behavior
• Laissez-faire teaching practices.

Authoritarian teaching behavior

    The authoritarian teaching behavior is based on the classic theory of task-centered organization. It is assumed that the members of the organization are primarily a passive instrument, capable of performing a task and receiving instructions but not initiating any action, in this type of teacher.

• Exerts firm centralized control. He directs every action of his disciples.

• Conducts all planning for the lesson and gives all directions.

• Tell students what to think and what to do

• He thinks and sees himself as the only active actor in the lesson and sees the students as passive listeners to instructions and information.

In this way, teaching is limited to the level of memory, there is no room for the development of students' feelings and attitudes. There is no room for criticism, even the teacher cannot teach bad things to students.

Democratic teaching

    The democratic mode of teaching is based on a theory of human relations centered on the organizational relation; The main premise of this theory is that members bring attitudes, values, and goals to their organizations: that they must be motivated to participate in the behavior of the organization's system. Worker attitudes and morale are important in explaining the behavior of the organization.

    In this type of teaching, the teacher plays the role of the democratic leader of the group. His main goal is to guide his students in the study of significant problems in the field in which he teaches. In a classroom like this there is always room for the exchange of ideas, evidence and viewpoints, give and take and respect for the ideas of others. The teaching activities recognized here in this model are motivation, planning, counseling and evaluation.

Laissez-faire teaching behavior

    Laissez-faire teaching behavior is based on modern task- and relationship-oriented organizational theory. It assumes that members of the organization make decisions and solve problems, and that perceptions and processes are central to explaining the organization's behavior.
