Title:
Nurturing Aesthetic Knowledge: A Teaching/Learning Innovation
Abstract:
Nurturing Aesthetic Knowledge: A Teaching/Learning Innovation
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Cable-Williams, Beryl, RN, BNSc, MN
P.I. Institution Name:Sir Sandford Fleming College
Title:Professor of Nursing
A significant influence on the therapeutic nurse-client relationship is the ability of the nurse to communicate hamanistic caring. That ability is contingent on the degree to which nurses can empathize with each unique client in his/her experience of health and illness. Truly "being with" the one being cared for (Watson) requires a complex interaction of empiric, personal, ethical and aesthetic knowledge (Chinn). Traditionally in nursing education, teaching/learning activities on which evaluation is based have focused on empiric knowledge while other ways of knowing have received little attention and no credit. At the same time, research about learning styles confirms that many learners access knowledge and express understanding best via non-verbal means. This presentation will describe the use of visual/artistic teaching/learning and evaluation strategies used to foster aesthetic knowledge and access meaning through non-verbal processes. Among student responses to the approach were satisfaction, pleasure, stress reduction and transformation. Even the initially reluctant "artists" encouraged the continued use of the strategy in future offerings of the course in the second year of our Collaborative BScN program.
