The various teaching strategies used by the radiologic technology instructors have a major role in class, particularly in the dissemination of information to students. This study aimed to determine the demographic characteristics of the radiologic technology instructors, the different teaching strategies used by the instructors during classes, the academic performance of radiologic technology students in their professional subjects, and the relationship of the teaching strategies to the academic performance of students. To determine these, the study used a modified questionnaire taken from different studies. The research utilized an analytic cross- sectional method. The study utilized the Universal Sampling Method, covering all the radiologic technology instructors and the second and third year students. The result of the study revealed that most of the radiologic technology instructors are Bachelor of Science degree holders with one to ten years and eleven to twenty years of teaching experience as instructors; and majority of the instructors had attended one to two trainings on seminars about teaching strategies. Moreover, their level of adoption to the effective teaching strategies is described as “always”. The academic performance of the second year and third year students falls to “fair” and “satisfactory’’ levels. The teaching strategies used by the instructors have no significant relationship to the academic performance of the students.
