Emerging Information Technologies, Psychological Type, and Learning Styles: Evaluating Competing Methodologies for Teaching Television Lighting.
Hoerner, John Martin, Jr.
Finding the right match between a particular instructional technology and a learning style can be just as important for students as finding the right match between their instructors' teaching styles and their own learning styles. This study examines the effectiveness of three instructional methodologies for teaching television lighting methods when compared to individual learning styles. The methodologies included an illustrated text, an interactive CD-ROM, and a non-interactive, linear videotape. Learning styles were determined with the Myers-Briggs psychological type questionnaire. Results lend support for the choice of instructional materials appropriate to students' learning styles, based on Myers-Briggs psychological types, but they do not make very clear distinctions between the latest instructional methodology, the CD-ROM, and a more traditional one, the videotape, as to which is more appealing to a particular learning style. Six tables and figures present findings. (AEF)
