Teaching Style vs Learning Style

Teaching Style vs Learning Style

In this article, Bettina Lankard Brown explores the different forms of teaching and theorizes why teachers often do not emulate the pedagogy from which they originally learned best as students. Since teaching incorporates a component of performance, instructors often find themselves using whatever makes them feel comfortable instead of engaging with various teaching theories. In an effort to combat this trend to adopt short-term solution pedagogical methods, Brown presents various forms of Adult Learning Theory and explains what methods might best be used to impart knowledge most successfully to college students.
