Farkas, Gary J.; Mazurek, Ewa; Marone, Jane R. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2016
The VARK learning style is a pedagogical focus in health care education. This study examines relationships of course performance vs. VARK learning preference, study time, and career plan among students enrolled in an undergraduate anatomy and physiology course at a large urban university. Students (n?=?492) from the fall semester course completed…
