Learning styles are nearly as diverse as people are, when you think about it. For example: a person may learn well watching a video and then completing the task themselves; but prefer to read or listen to audio books. Those are different ways to absorb materials. When building a course, consider how diverse you are as a learner or your colleagues are and then evaluate whether the learning materials and activities are diverse. It is a mission, as a Quality Matters institution to meet the needs of all learners, not just a few. Consider the learning styles matrix below. Where you do you fall?
