The theories about teaching students according to learning styles have been debunked in research, but the idea has been difficult to interrupt in practice. We read a new paper focused on helping teachers move on from old thinking related to learning styles with more productive contemporary research.
Later, we look at a listener recommendation focused on helping students think about how they view their own learning, in order to promote more effective practices among students.
