Proposal Abstract

This study conducts a follow-up to previous research which assessed the effectiveness of reality-based focusing events across the curriculum for the graduate Criminal Justice studies courses at Saint Leo University. The results of the previous study indicated that the new curriculum that integrated the reality-based focusing event theme was perceived by graduate students as being a valuable learning tool, highly realistic, and that the knowledge gained would help them in their individual criminal justice careers. The current study examines whether any such favorable impact correlates to student's individual sensory modality preferences. The results of the study can be used by other learning institutions that are considering the implementation of a similar reality-based focusing event across the curricula.
