The learning styles idea introduced and proposed by a number of innovative and pioneering educational researchers in the 70s and 80s, caused uproar amongst the hardcore, “whip-on-the-desk” teachers who have been looking for ways to dismiss and disprove it ever since. Also proposed in the 80s, Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences challenged educators, curriculum developers and administrators to reflect on how our students learn, how much information is actually transferred from teachers to learners using classic teaching methods and ultimately, how much is actually retained by the learners after 12 years of formal education. Unfortunately, decades after these innovative teaching methods were first described, teacher training programs around the world continue to promote “one-size-fits-all” lesson planning.

In this two-part session, Maria will introduce you to the Multiple Intelligences (MI) and the Learning Styles (LS) theories through examples and hands-on activities. You will make the connection between the two theories and through self-assessment and self-reflection, you will identify which sets of MI and LS reflect your own learning and teaching preference. The second part of the session, will provide you with the necessary tools to plan for and put together your own lessons using a variety of teaching techniques that will engage your learners as a group, no matter what learning method they prefer.
