"I am an auditory learner, and this class doesn't fit my learning style!" We've all heard that before from either a friend or the student sitting beside us in class. The topic of learning styles is a controversial one in the field of pedagogy — teaching methods and practises. Generally, students categorize themselves as one of the following types of learners: visual, auditory, verbal or kinesthetic. However, the idea that students learn best when they receive information in their preferred learning style is extremely flawed. Currently scientific research does not support the existence of learning styles. This video discusses where this (incorrect!) theory originated and why it continues to be popular among educators and students despite the lack of support for it. From there, we will delve into scientific studies that show that matching teaching style to a specific learning style does not improve outcomes.
