Learning Styles and Pedagogy in Post-16 Learning: A Systematic and Critical Review

Learning Styles and Pedagogy in Post-16 Learning: A Systematic and Critical Review
"This report critically reviews the literature on learning styles and examines in detail 13 of the most influential models. The report concludes that it matters fundamentally which instrument is chosen. The implications for teaching and learning in post-16 learning are serious and should be of concern to learners, teachers and trainers, managers, researchers and inspectors." Really nice summary of the learning styles models - a great place to get an overview. More...

The Dynamic Approach to Learning

The Dynamic Approach to Learning
There isn't a whole lot that's revolutionary in this interview with Jonathon Levy, but his assessment of the field is consistent with mine: "The field is marked by a juxtaposition of new technology and old pedagogy." Consistent with his previous work, Levy proposes a dymanic workplace model of learning. More...

Anyhow, I was asked today to list the attributes a CLO would need to have and to demonstrate to a hiring committee... here's what I came up with. By Stephen Downes, Learning Circuits Blog, June 25, 2004 [Refer][Research][Reflect]. More...
