Just a little reminder if you’re into UDL: learning styles don’t exist

From experience to meaning...

The past few days my post on Universal Design for Learning has been visited quite a lot, partly because of this post by Greg Ashman. I was asked by colleagues by my own institute to factcheck their document on UDL. The first thing I got rid of was the unnecessary and incorrect brain explanation that is often used when UDL is being discussed. Luckily my colleagues didn’t make another mistake often made…

When I worked on my first post on UDL I also discovered that a lot of people talk about something very specific in which people may vary: learning styles. I don’t want to link to any document as a kind of scapegoat, but just combine UDL with learning styles in Google and you’ll find many, even very recent documents.

So just to be clear: learning styles don’t exist.
