The NBI® Teacher/Trainer Instrument is a special version of the adult instrument, thus the focus is on your thinking preferences in the teaching and training environment. The report will be written with a teacher/trainer setting in mind.
Our research has shown us that classrooms with a whole brain focus are more effective and better disciplined than those without it.
What does this mean?
Your thinking preferences will affect the way you teach, while the thinking preferences of a student will affect how they learn. It is obvious then that this knowledge is precious to both the teacher and the student alike.
This profiling instrument will help teachers understand their own thinking preferences, which in turn will give them extra insight into the learning styles of their students. Learning about your teaching profile may be the moment where you realise why some students click with your style of teaching and others do not.
There is no good or bad, right or wrong profile. Every manner of thinking has its benefits, and every manner of thinking can be adapted depending on what the student or subject matter requires.
