Abstract

An understanding of how students learn can facilitate the design and creation of better teaching materials. Instruments that attempt to measure learning styles are many and varied, and their use can be controversial. This paper reports on a study of the learning styles of students in an introductory programming course, and a comparison with the learning style of their instructor. We conclude that it is not necessary to cover all possible learning styles, so long as students’ learning preferences include the modalities presented in materials.
