Abstract

Learning styles are characteristic cognitive, affective, and psychological behaviours that serve as relatively stable indicators of how learners perceive, interact with, and respond to the learning environment. Teachers must provide a variety of learning approaches to successfully lead our students through the task of learning so that these differences can be recognized and provided for in every classroom, this could be through lectures, demonstration, or leading students to self-discovery. Understanding the different ways that students learn, interact with and process information can help us modify the way we teach so that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed.

The present study is an attempt to assess the learning styles among the B.Ed student teachers. The learning styles assessed in the survey were Visual, Auditory, Reading and Kinesthetic. The student teachers were administered a questionnaire and feedback for the same was taken. The study revealed that student teachers preferred learning through Reading more effective.
