Learning Styles in the Online Environment
Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. in P266
Because online instruction is so prevalent on campuses and within libraries, educators and librarians need to understand and ensure the learning objects and tutorials they create are effective for a wide range of students. Did the faculty member, librarian or instructional designer create their learning materials to best accommodate diverse learners or did they construct their tools in ways that reflect their own teaching and learning styles?
Lori Mestre will offer background information on the theories and controversies of learning styles in order to understand the importance of creating learning objects and tutorials that match student needs.
She will provide examples and suggest ways to accommodate multiple learning styles.
