I am attaching some different presentations I used at previous institutions, both in my role as a career/academic counselor and as an instructor (you'll notice different stuff in different presentations for class and workshops).
Also, NC State University in Raleigh, NC has a great resource (free) where students can take an online questionnaire and get results on screen immediately upon completion - presenters could take the survey, too, and get the information on the learning styles the folks at NCSU use in their work for that resource. The link is: http://www4.ncsu.edu/unity/lockers/u...c/ILSpage.html. The link for the questionnaire is on that main page.
Let me know if you have any questions about any of the attached...I continued to build on old presentations and adapt over the years...

more learning style stuff
more great learning stuff from Angela
Thanks Brian. I use two learning style approaches and try to help students blend them together. One is based on Jungian (MBTI-Type) and the other is sensory based (VARK). The Vark is online and allows the student to take a short assessment and even gets interactive with them in presenting the results. Go to: http://www.vark-learn.com/english/index.asp
Since I work with grad students in healthcare (medical school, dental, PT, OT, AuD, AT, PA), I have them go to a great FREE site developed by John Pelley, PhD of Texas Tech College of Medicine. Go to http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/success/default.htm He developed the Learning Style Type Indicator http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/success/page_LSTI/LSTI.htm which will give the student an MBTI style Learning Type. I use the MBTI book on learning style to discuss with students how they learn best and what particular strategies might work well. I can share a form that I give to students as a shorthand on understanding type. Let me know if the attachment doesn't come through.
Thank you for sharing the information about Learning Style. It has been very helpful for the academic probation students to find out their learning style.
