Abstract

Many students are required to post their bio as part of the orientation for new online courses of study for the semester. Later in the term instructors find that they experience difficulty with the students, which is not the result of a learning problem. Students don’t lack in competence, but in confidence. Instructors often do not have an idea how to help these students. If instructors require students to take a personality type preference test at the beginning of a course, they will understand and know how students communicate, deal with conflict, and make decisions. This can all be accomplished online. The one hour workshop will start with participants answering 10 questions to determine their dominant personality type. Additional discussion points will include:

An overview of the four dominant personality styles; influence of values and personality type on relationships with coworkers, family members, and friends; how decisions are made based on personality traits; suggestions for dealing with conflict; and finding inner strengths.
