Proposal Title

Online and Hybrid Courses - At Last We Can Connect with Different Learning Styles!

Proposal Abstract

In the realm of the scholarship of teaching and learning, we often speak of the importance of learning styles. Both the learning style of students, as well as the learning style/teaching style of faculty, are often discussed. However, we are still in the single learning style application in the classroom. Students are all expected to follow the exact same lecture, do the same homework, and take the same tests and quizzes regardless of their learning styles. This proposal concerns how both online and hybrid courses (1/2 in class and ½ online) can now allow students to “individualize” their instruction. Using the technology available, courseware can now be created that allows students to follow different types of ways to “learn” material. Participants will examine ways in which a learning module can be produced in different modalities, and will examine their own learning preference.
