Radiologic technology education has shifted significantly from the hospital to college-based degree programs. Academically strong programs offer considerable advantage for the health professionals. Radiologic technology education generally has not kept pace with this trend. Traditional learning process, integrating teaching and learning pyramids will be discussed during the presentation. Radiologic technology educators must be mindful of how college students are motivated and use various instructional strategies to increase students motivation in the classroom and clinical setting. We as educators must accept differences among students and between students and faculty. One of the cFlamingo 2enges we are facing today is, our studentâs exhibit increased motivation in classes while educators have high expectations. Implementing different instructional styles such as connecting with students, creating an interactive classroom, and guiding students will result in improved student motivation.
