Learning styles

It is now commonplace for students to be told that they have a preference for a

particular learning style and should make use of this to maximise their learning.

However, recent reviews of the evidence (for example, Coffield

et al., 2004) have

found little evidence for all but a handful of these theories. This lack of evidence

includes perhaps the best-known typology of recent years: the visual, auditory or

kinaesthetic learner.
