Learning Styles: Popular Despite Lack of Evidence

Learning Styles: Popular Despite Lack of Evidence | MOOC4teachers | Scoop.it

"The term 'learning styles' refers to the concept that individuals differ in regard to what mode of instruction or study is most effective for them. Proponents of learning-style assessment contend that optimal instruction requires diagnosing individuals' learning style and tailoring instruction accordingly. However, at present, there is no adequate evidence base to justify incorporating learning-styles assessments into general educational practice. Thus, limited education resources would better be devoted to adopting other educational practices that have a strong evidence base, of which there are an increasing number." | via Sage Publications
