This is a great resource!  I teach diversity at many institutions and I always use personality testing to help learners understand their learning styles early on in each class.


Below is an example post I create in the discussion threads for learners to reflect on their learning style.


Diversity, multiple generations (or age groups), learning styles, and ability levels are all considerations educators must understand in depth.  In addition, it is important that we apply current research best practices and Andragogy or Pedagogy Theory related to those concepts in our instructional strategies and methods.  Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences is an example of an instructional concept one should understand and apply in the classroom.


According to Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences:

a)      Linguistic – a love of language; ability to effectively use words in writing and speaking

b)      Logical/Mathematical – ability to use numbers effectively and to reason well

c)      Spatial – ability to perceive, use patterns, and create mental images to solve problems

d)     Kinesthetic – ability to use one’s body to express ideas or one’s hands to produce things

e)      Musical – ability to perceive, discriminate, express, and transform rhythmical forms

f)       Interpersonal – ability to perceive and make distinctions about the moods, feelings, and intentions of others

g)      Intrapersonal – ability to recognize self knowledge and act on that knowledge

h)      Naturalist – ability to observe and operate hands-on in nature and in their environment; recognize patterns and classify

i)        Existential – ability to see individual roles in the “big picture”; enjoys discussing questions about life. Relaxation, meditation, and visiting nature are rewarding.


To the class:  As educators, examine why it is important that we are aware of the various multiple intelligences in our classrooms when working with diverse learners?

I have not yet used this in my classroom but one of our modules discusses identifying their learning style and how to implement this in the classroom to be successul. I will use this to give them more information on the different styles. This is a good tool
