Students taught partly in a manner they prefer, leads to an increased comfort level and willingness to learn. Taught partly in a less preferred manner, provides practice and feedback in ways of thinking and solving problems which they may not initially be comfortable with but which they will have to use to be fully effective professionals.

Objectives

Understanding learning styles will allow us to understand how the students setting in our classes learn the best.

As instructors we can tailor our teaching methods to match the learning styles that our students possess.

The primary goal of an undergraduate education is to produce a student capable of thinking for themselves.

Teaching to their learning styles and forcing them to learn outside their preferred styles will develop more effective professional.

Perception of information increased comfort level and willingness to learn. Taught partly in a less preferred manner, provides practice and feedback in ways of thinking and solving problems which they may not initially be comfortable with but which they will have to use to be fully effective professionals.

Sensors like to work with real data and like details

Intuitors like to work with theories and like concepts

Making it fit in the real world or the world of ideas

Active-Reflective

  • Processing to Retain

  • Active learners need to interact with the material directly and/or talking with others

  • Reflective learners need to think about where the new information fits
