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.
