Reaching the Second Tier: Learning and Teaching Styles in College Science Education

Richard Felder, North Carolina State University

This article describes how students can differ greatly from each other in their styles of learning, as well as how teachers may also differ in their approaches to teaching science. It describes the different teaching and learning techniques, and provides tips for teachers on how to make their classes more accessible to a broader range of students, not just those whose learning style happens to match the teacher's instructive approach. References are included.
