Changing the way we approach learning styles in teacher education

Session description

Carol Lethaby
Patricia Harries

Session details:

We will discuss and evaluate how we openly teach trainee teachers the notion of 'neuromyth', and that there is no evidence to support the assessment and accommodation of learning styles as a way to enhance language learning. We'll show how we facilitate this discussion and focus instead on evidence-based teaching and training techniques.
