  • A subset of cognitive styles that refer to the cognitive structure and processes within individuals in order to make sense of and acquire knowledge and skills within a learning situation. In addition, learning styles also relate to learner preferences for and perceptions of processing information but do not necessarily relate to processing ability. These preferences assume that each individual knows how he or she learns best. Learning styles are said to relate to heredity, prior experiences, and the current demands of the learning environment. Several of the theories related to learning styles are based on Jungian psychology. Most learning-style instruments are self-report measures.
