Many learning centers and tutor training programs incorporate discussion and activities related to learning styles. However current research tends to consider learning styles with skepticism. Through discussion and group activity, this session will explore best practices that reconcile how both may be of value.

This session will utilize a variety of presentational techniques. These include, but are not limited to the following: PowerPoint, discussion, brainstorming and group activity.

The group activity is an important element of the session as it encourages interaction among session participants, reinforces recognizing differing learning styles or preferences and how they affect group dynamics, and it provides a valuable tie-in to the conference theme. Participants will be divided into groups according to their learning style or preference. Each group will be tasked with determining how to best move four hypothetical travelers across a bridge while following prescribed guidelines.
