Learning Styles at the Crossroads of the Laboratory and the Classroom
Lodge, Jason M.; Cottrell, David; Hansen, Louise
Learning: Research and Practice, v3 n2 p183-187 2017
This commentary is a response to those of Hall (2016) and Winebrenner (2016), which in turn were responses to the article the authors wrote on modality preferences and learning styles (Lodge, Hansen, & Cottrell, 2016). There are several key points the authors wish to address in this reply. Most importantly, and aligned with the aims and focus of "Learning: Research and Practice," the authors would like to take the opportunity to discuss why learning styles provide a key example of what happens when the link between research and practice is corroded.
