  • the beginnings of learning style theory

  • multiple intelligences, and how these apply to learning styles

  • assessing learning styles

  • difficulties with learning

This course is not just for teachers, as the information about learning styles can relate to other aspects of everyday life, such as business, work, and family.

Some of the fascinating material we will cover includes: intuitive learners, visual learners, verbal learners, active learners, reflective learners, sequential learners, and global learners.

We cover the beginnings of learning styles to include the model developed by Anthony Gregorc, the Dunn and Dunn Learning Styles Model, Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, and Neil Fleming's VARK Learning Style Model.

The course also includes quizzes to help you assess your understanding of the material. After completing the course, you should be familiar with learning styles, the concept of multiple intelligences, and the basics of theories, such as constructivism. You should also be familiar with how to assess learning styles, and begin to address learning difficulties, plus have an understanding of issues involved in current research as it relates to learning styles.
