These days, more focus and importance is given on identifying students’ learning styles as a basis for providing responsive instruction. Studies conducted by teaching and learning psychologists demonstrate how students learn better in certain settings with certain types of instructions and certain types of instructors. In this workshop, we will explore about students’ different learning styles. And with reference to Psychology’s principles of learning, we will then discuss ways in which we can enhance our teaching strategies in an EFL classroom. This workshop will be interactive, involving pair or small group work. The participants will analyze some case samples of different classroom situations. In addition, the same groups will brainstorm effective teaching strategies for these cases following principles of learning taken up earlier. There will be a powerpoint presentation as part of the workshop. Handouts will be provided containing workshop case samples. There will be a short question and answer session following the workshop.
