Learning Styles of College of Industrial Technology Students
Type Of :
The main objectives of the research were to study learning style preferences of the four-year program undergraduate students from College of Industrial Technology as well as to propose the “learning management model” that matched each learning style. The population included 1,077 students enrolling in the 2006 academic year. The inventory adapted from Grasha s and Reicemann s Student Learning Style Scales (GRSLSS) was used to determine learners style preferences including Independent, Avoidance, Collaborative, Dependent, Competitive and Participant approaches. Means and standard deviations were analyzed via package program. The research revealed the favorite learning style of most students from overall majors and academic levels was the Dependent one. Considering academic levels in particular, most of the freshmen revealed their preference on the Participant scheme while the Dependent one was predominantly desired by the sophomores. The juniors generally chose both Collaborative and Participating dimensions whereas the seniors disclosed their favor upon Collaborative Style. In addition, the Avoidant method was revealed to be the least style preference of the population in overall. According to the study, the most outstanding problem came from inadequate attention of learners, particularly those in Style. In addition, the Avoidant method was revealed to be the least style preference of the population in overall. According to the study, the most outstanding problem came from inadequate attention of learners, particularly those in the second, third, and forth year. However, the freshmen informed their most incapability of following their class lectures. According to students suggestions, the combination style of teaching would probably be an ideal approach. In addition, instruction methods provided by the College of Industrial Technology should be pertinent to learning styles together with the characteristics of learners, instructors, instruction media, as well as evaluation processes. Meanwhile existing problems in learning are supposed to be taken into earnest consideration for the utmost benefit of learning proficiency.
