The next question Serena and I didn’t have time to answer at the :SCALED event last week was as follows:
This answer is simple; you don’t.
The science is clear – designing for learning styles makes no difference to the effectiveness of the learning. See Arter & Jenkins, 1979; Kampwirth & Bates, 1980; Kavale & Forness, 1987; Kavale, Hirshoren, & Forness, 1998; Pashler et al., 2009; Snider, 1992; Stahl, 1999; Tarver & Dawson, 1978; and Kozhevnikov, Evans, & Kosslyn, 2014.
The evidence is in.
Learning styles is a belief.
There is a prize of $6000 if you can prove this:
Can an e-learning program that utilizes learning-style information outperform an e-learning program that doesn’t utilize such information by 10% or more on a realistic test of learning, even it is allowed to cost up to twice as much to build?Will Thalheimer
It’s a prize unclaimed in 15 years – hybrid isn’t going to prove it.
