Learning styles: Learning that empowers students?
Despite much disagreement, educators and psychologists agree that different students learn differently. Learning differences come under many labels, such as 'learning styles', 'thinking styles', 'personality types' or 'multiple intelligences'. This paper supports the use of learning style models as a theoretical framework for quality educational development in the Arab Gulf Countries. It will (a) briefly explore various learning styles models, with primary focus on the Dunn & Dunn model and its assessment instruments; (b) review key research conducted internationally, as well as locally at Zayed University; (c) examine the benefits of using multimodal and multisensory instructional packages in various disciplines; (d) consider divergent ideas and thoughts on the value of introducing learning style based education.
