Higher Ed: Different Learning Styles – Myth or Helpful Tool?

Do you sense that you understand things better when you read them or hear them? Do you learn better via words or images? Are there really even different learning “styles” at all? In this episode of KUT’s podcast Higher Ed, KUT’s Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger explore a listener’s question about learning styles. Some research supports the existence of different learning styles; some indicates that concept is a myth. Listen on to hear Ed and Jennifer delve into different learning styles and whether students benefit from knowing how they learn best. You’ll also hear the latest puzzler; it comes from a universe where three = 1/2 of five. No, really…. in this world, it can!
