The Importance of Learning Style Pathways

In this presentation will discuss the results of a study that shows a significant improvement in both learning and satisfaction for learners who followed a pathway that matched their learning styles – then demonstrate possible ways to incorporate instructional strategies, based on these pathways, into lessons using SoftChalk.

This study investigated the effects of following learning style pathways on learning and satisfaction in an online biology laboratory for non-science major undergraduates. Results of the study show a statistically significant improvement for students following their pathways that matched their learning styles compared to learners who failed to do so

This presentation will include a description of learning pathways, dominant and subdominant styles, and related instructional strategies.  And also show how SoftChalk created content can be used to optimize learning and satisfaction.
