Online versus In-Class Courses: Learning-Style Assessment as an Advisement Tool
Cicco, Gina
International Journal on E-Learning, v8 n2 p161-173 Apr 2009
Discourse on the value of online instruction continues to prevail in institutions of higher education. Recent evidence points to the relationships among specific learning-style preferences and achievement and attitudes in online versus in-class courses (Cicco, 2007). Academic advisement has been documented as a critical factor in student retention in college (McArthur, 2005; Smith, 2003). Academic advisors who are aware of their advisees' learning-style preferences and simultaneously relate these preferences to potential accommodation in online and/or in-class courses may greatly improve their advisement practices (Dunn & Griggs, 2003). This article addresses the use of learning-style assessment as an important tool for academic advisors as they seek to provide college students with viable options during course selection.
