In my new book, Evidence-based Training Methods (ASTD Press), I conclude my review of research on learning styles with the hope that if readers do nothing else, they abandon time and resources devoted to learning styles in favor of other instructional methods which have much more evidence to support them. In other words, it’s time to drop the learning styles myth. What do you think about learning styles? What makes the learning style idea so compelling?
I’ll devote some future posts to the evidence (or lack thereof) on learning styles that I’ve seen since I wrote my book.
