Teaching strategies is a combination of instructional methods, learning activities and methods that actively engaged students and appropriately reflect both learning goals and students developmental needs.
Teaching strategies vary in different ways because as any good teacher knows, all students do not learn in the same way. In addition, it is common for a class of students to be at a variety of levels in any particular subjects. Teachers need to use different teaching methods in order to reach all students needs effectively; instances like the strategies used by the clinical instructors of Colegio San Agustin Bacolod, mostly they use visual aids like power point presentation to discuss nursing procedures effectively and explain concepts or topics through images or pictures that shows the actual setting in the clinical area. But through the years of teaching, lecture is one of the fundamental types of teaching strategies. For many years, the lecture method was the most widely used instructional strategy in the classrooms. Nearly 80% of all classroom in the late 1970s reported using some form of the lecture method to teach students (Cashin, 1990). Although the usefulness of other teaching strategies is being widely examined today such as case method wherein they provide an opportunity for students to apply what they learn in the classroom to real-life experiences has proven to be an effective way of both disseminating and integrating knowledge. The case method is an instructional strategy that engages students in active discussion about issues and problems inherent in practical application. It can highlight fundamental dilemmas or critical issues and provide a format for role playing ambiguous or controversial scenarios. Another type of instructional strategies is the power point presentation which is a kind of multimedia commonly used in teaching nowadays. Power point presentation provide a productive kind of teaching strategies in conveying knowledge and ideas because it offers a more specific and interesting because it projects images, sounds and videos. But before the existence of these multimedia devices extensively use today, there are already teaching strategies occurred along with the lecture method such as the active learning method, Meyers and Jones (1993). Many studies show that learning is enhance when the students are actively participate in the class. The use of these multimedia devices is a no doubt that it enhances the process of learning because obviously nowadays students are more determined to study by using this interactive program as a teaching strategy. Although the usefulness of multimedia today that is being widely used today as a teaching tool, the lecture still remains an important way to communicate information. Statement of the problem
This research investigation aims to determine what are the common use teaching strategies utilize by the clinical instructors of College of Nursing of Colegio San Agustin Bacolod who are employed during the school year of 2013-2014.
