This week leading academics from the worlds of neuroscience, education and psychology expressed their concerns over the continuing popularity of the theory of ‘learning styles’, saying the approach is ineffective, a waste of resources and potentially damaging to pupils’ learning.

Stuart Kime, Director of Evidence Based Education, CEM’s approved training provider, outlines why schools should abandon trying to teach pupils in a way that is aligned with their preferred learning style. Instead they should focus on evidence-based practice for improving opportunities for pupil learning.
