An Examination of Learning Preferences of U.S. and International Students
Stowe, Kristin; Clinebell, Sharon
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v26 n4 p258-272 2015
Learning styles and preferences are often discussed topics in educational psychology, but are less prevalent in business education. International students are another understudied segment of business education. This article reviews literature regarding learning styles and preferences and examines whether U.S. and international students have different learning preferences using the visual-aural-read/write-kinesthetic (VARK) model. The findings indicate a large percentage of both populations have multimodal learning preferences. For the students who have one preferred learning mode, differences do exist between international and U.S. students.
