Many educators have read about and trained in the theory of "learning styles". Believers in learning styles contend that people have an innate style in which they learn best (kinesthetic, auditory, visual, for example), and that matching instruction to that learning style will enable students to learn better. While there are appealing aspects of this approach (students ARE different in the way they learn), and may make intuitive sense, the research supporting learning styles is very weak. This presentation will explore the idea learning styles, and highlight the arguments made by supporters and skeptics.
Dan Feinberg, a Senior Instructional Designer at the SUNY Learning Network, is leading this webinar on learning styles.
The SUNY Center for Professional Development, as part of the SUNY TLT Cooperative, is providing this webinar.
