InSITE 2006 • Volume 6 • 2006
Learning styles are relatively-stable characteristic behaviors that indicate how students prefer to leam. To maximize student learning, it is important for instructors to address learning styles when designing their lessons. What does the research say about learning styles? What should instructors do to factor learning styles into traditional lessons? What should be done differently with respect to learning styles when designing computer-based training software? This summary paper answers these questions. In this presentation, through discussion and demonstration, participants will be given practical suggestions for addressing learning styles in both traditionally-delivered lessons and computer-based training applications.
