Learning Styles and Their Implications in Learning and Teaching

The Importance To Study
Learning and Learning Styles

All successful teaching depends upon learning. (Cook,2000)

Individual students’ learning styles and strategies can work together with or conflict with-a given instructional methodology. (Oxford, 2001)

Ellis (2005) proposes the concept of learner-instruction matching.

What are Learning Styles?
The characteristic ways in which individuals orientate to problem solving. (Ellis, 2005)

Cornett defines learning style as the overall patterns that will give general direction to learning behaviour.

The characteristic cognitive, affective and physiological behaviours that serve as relatively stable indicators of how learners perceive, interact with and respond to the learning environment. (Keefe, 1979)

Dunn and Griggs, they define learning style as the biologically and developmentally imposed set of characteristics that make the same teaching method wonderful for some and terrible for others.

What are Learning Styles?
Learning Style Types
and Models
1. Perceptual Learning Styles
Visual learning
Tactile learning
Kinesthetic/ Practical Learning
2. Cognitive Learning Styles
focuser and scanner
serialists and holists
divergent and convergent
field dependence (global learner) and field independence (analytic learner)
3. Personality Learning Types
Reflective Learner
Impulsive Learner
4. Learners of Compound Learning Styles
Teaching Strategies Guided by Learning Styles
Use questions of all types to stimulate various levels of thinking from recalling factual information to drawing implications and making value judgments.

Provide a general overview of the material to be learned.

Allow sufficient time for information to be processed and then integrate using both the right-and left-brain hemispheres.
Warm up before the lesson development.

Use multisensory means for both processing and retrieving information.

Use a variety of review and reflection strategies to bring closure to learning.

Learning Styles Implications To Learning and Teaching
According to Ellis, Learners manifest different learning styles but it is not clear whether some styles result in faster and more learning in others.

Learning style is about Rights and Responsibilities.

Students who recognise their learning strengths and limitations have an advantage over those who don’t.

Teachers and parents who recognise and respect individual difference have an advantage over those who don’t.
