Learning Styles Understanding the Myth and the Opportunity

Event Details

The learning styles myth has been noted by many as "the myth that will not die." We have evidence, so why doesn't this just go away? In this webinar, we will look at WHY people believe it is effective to teach to a given learning style, under what circumstances teaching to a perceived learning style may be beneficial and explore a very straightforward alternative that is in line with the evidence. After all, if you are going to take something away, there needs to be a replacement. In this webinar, you will learn about an effective replacement.

This webinar will be facilitated by Todd D. Zakrajsek, Associate Professor at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), USA and Director of five annual Lilly Teaching Conferences.
