Assessing Learning Styles

12:30 to 1:30 pm -- Friday, May 3rd, 2013 -- Room S5 -- Assessing Learning Styles (what we learn from education research and biology) -- Presenter: Susmita Sengupta -- Biology Department

How do our students learn? Our students come with different strengths and different methods for best learning material:

  • Visual
  • Oral
  • Kinesthetic
  • Verbal
  • Solitary
  • Group and peer work
  • Multimodal

During this presentation we'll discuss ways to assess student learning styles, develop assessment methods that best reach your students through multiple learning styles, and ultimately, find ways to use this information to maximize student learning success in your classrooms.

Presenter/faciliator: Susmita Sengupta, Biology and Katryn Wiese, SLO Coordinator
