elearn Magazine: Why Is the Research on Learning Styles Still Being Dismissed by Some Learning Leaders and Practitioners?

elearn Magazine: Why Is the Research on Learning Styles Still Being Dismissed by Some Learning Leaders and Practitioners? | FutureLearnTech | Scoop.it

I have been battling the notion of "designing instruction for learning styles" in my own quixotic fashion for a couple of decades now.

Knud Skov's insight:

More than 25 years of research on this and related themes have not provided any form of conclusive evidence that matching the form of instruction to learning style improved learning or even attention.
Learning styles do not predict learning under different instructional conditions. There are no "visual" or "verbal" learners etc.
No reviews of the research on learning styles have reached a positive conclusion. There are studies of learning styles (many of them designed by advocates or sales people for different style measures) that reach positive conclusions but the reviews conclude that those studies are poorly designed (or at least designed to find positive results for favored style measures).
