Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Schools across the United States have begun to revolutionize curricula to emphasize empathic pedagogy in academic and vocational programs, and current research is beginning to suggest educational innovations that can foster affective learning and help students be more introspective and emotionally attuned at responding intelligently and compassionately to others. So why hasn't distance education incorporated these same strategies for fostering affective development?

PURPOSE: Although multimedia narrative has been used to foster affective learning in the traditional classroom, little guidance is provided on the use of narrative to foster affective learning in the online class. Perhaps this is because many educators feel that the online learning environment is inadequate for promoting and assessing affective development. The purpose of this presentation is to: 1. Define the role of narrative in affective learning; 2. Understand how affective development is described by Krathwohl's taxonomy; 3. Examine Krathwohl's taxonomy as a method for selecting narrative; 4. Appraise the application of Krathwohl's taxonomy to the Online Learning Environment.

METHODOLOGY: Krathwohl's taxonomy can be used as a scaffold for selecting/organizing multimedia narratives to arouse emotion and foster affective development in the OLE.

RESULTS: The use of Krathwohl's taxonomy to organize patient narratives in an online doctoral level course on medical ethics and professionalism at Nova Southeastern University will be discussed.

CONCLUSIONS: Recommendations are made for future research on organizing the sequence of learning resources to match the student's affective learning trajectory.
