Learning styles


For many years, there has been a lot of discussion about the need to address a variety of student learning styles. Many sets of possible descriptors are used. A recent literature review by Pasher et. al (2008), however, suggests that learning styles do not really matter. It is, of course, important that principles of universal design be used to meet the needs of students with disabilities.
