Course Syllabus: Understanding Learning Styles

This class 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 cover includes learning styles such as sensory learners, intuitive learners, visual learners, verbal learners, active learners, reflective learners, sequential learners, and global learners.
We cover the beginnings of learning style to include Anthony Gregorc's model, the Dunn and Dunn Learning Styles Model, Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Model, and Neil Fleming's VARK Learning Style Model. We also look at questionnaires and other tools available to assess learning preferences.
