Part 1 presents information about three groups of variables that influence teaching and learning. 

System variables are factors in our professional/work systems that influence teaching and learning. These variables come from at least three sources: the nursing profession, the agencies in which we work, and accrediting bodies to whom we are accountable.

Teacher variables that influence teaching and learning include: the model or framework the individual teacher uses to guide his/her work; the teacher's understanding and use of learning theory; and teacher's teaching style.

Learner variables that influence teaching and learning are readiness and learning style. Readiness includes experiential readiness, emotional readiness, and physical and mental ability. Learning style includes several dimensions, and can be described in different ways.
