Running Head: RUNNING STYLES TESTS How Learning Styles are used in Higher Education Name: University: Course: Tutor: Date: Learning styles incorporate various methods used the dissemination of knowledge and skills mostly in an education setting. Supporters of learning styles have suggested that learners require an interactive approach to learning, one that suits their style of learning. Therefore, teachers should adopt teaching practices that are in line with the needs of the student within the social, cultural and emotional precincts of the learners.
