Summary/Abstract: Learning styles and the creation of effective learning environments are of emerging significance in education as the changing nature of work requires higher-order thinking. Workers must be able to analyze and interpret information to solve problems for which there are no given answers; connect facts, concepts, and processes; integrate functional capacities and behaviors; and transfer thinking across environments. To realize their intellectual capacity, students must become engaged in learning, stimulated by information that is presented to them in personally meaningful ways. Learning styles research identifies a broad range of preferences that individuals have for the way they assimilate information and the implications of those preferences for instructional design. This article describe some aspects about the critical thinking and creative strategies used to assess learning styles and provides guidelines to help vocational teachers use information on learning style to create effective learning environments.
