Sample text

A student’s learning style might alter with teaching style as a mechanism for meeting his or her learning needs. This change in learning style will then require the lecturer to change their teaching style to meet the needs of the students; thus the cycle of learning style and teaching style continues. It is important for the effective teacher to recognise such cycles of teaching and learning and consequently to plan teaching sessions according to student group and subject area. What is clear is that there are a variety of factors which affect the learning process; choice of teaching strategy is merely one aspect.

Your students will demonstrate all of these factors in a very diverse way. Understanding the underlying principles of learning will be helpful in planning and developing teaching sessions for your students. If learning is to take place, tutors and lecturers have to give students the space and opportunities to make explicit their understanding and then to consider alternative approaches and hypotheses. This assumes that students become actively involved in their learning. If students are to become active learners, tutors have to facilitate this activity.

The difficulty for the lecturer is to obtain a balance, allowing for sufficient flexibility for the support of individual learning but also maintaining a structure where a whole group of students can be kept on track and allowed to learn and develop through a course, module or entire programme. Student autonomy and self-directed learning supported by the lecturer would seem to be an encouraging step forward. What the lecturer should be looking for is to move beyond the enhancement of student performance within a narrow spectrum of learning activities and teaching situations and the development of foundation skills, such as self-directed learning and learning autonomy.
