Hi, Kelly.

I’ve moved away from the Learning Styles inventory and sometimes show students and tutors part of this Ted Talk that argues that the research on it is problematic: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__youtu.be_855Now8h5Rs&d=DwIGaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=yBiE514ByeBuT9iMcmLL81H9l3w_eWJJCNWWYb5qET4&m=13oPI5ip06DulsCarmneCnz3CvZ1_3rzxHtMYAADAV4&s=NAzqPSPlpsGlx-l1HPkCetR1abVrGKdCDB3Wdcyp5s8&e=. Instead, I use Bloom’s Taxonomy to discuss learning strategies.

Nonetheless, I encourage students to be metacognitive about their learning strategies and use what works best for them. So many students are familiar with learning styles, and the strategies are still helpful as long as students and tutors are careful not to pigeonhole themselves into certain categories.

Subject: Learning Styles in Tutoring

Hi Everyone,

When I became the peer tutoring supervisor, learning styles assessments were part of the intake process for new peer tutoring students. I have continued doing this, and some students say they find it helpful, and tutors also believe it is beneficial. However, I am wondering if there is any research out there on this topic.

I have searched some academic databases, but surprisingly have not found anything on learning styles as it relates to its use in tutoring. So, if any of you have some sources you could direct me to, I’d appreciate it!

Hi Ira!

I’d love to chat more about my experience. We got WCOnline this year and our Writing Center uses it as well. I’m currently using it for appointments, drop-in sessions, and workshops. I don’t, however, think I’m using the software the best way and am learning as I go. I’d love to hear from anyone who has created internal how-to’s or has any insight. Thanks!

Hi, All.

We offer small group tutoring, by appointment. We are looking at how WCOnline could work, with this option. We are also looking at their card reader to log tutors in and out (and potentially students).

If anybody has information and tips, I would be very interested in hearing them.

Best

Ira
