NSUBA hosts international learning styles conference July 18-22

Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow will host the International Learning Styles Network 34th Annual Institute/Conference from July 18-22.

“Incorporating learning styles into any classroom leads to higher student achievement – hundreds of research studies support this statement,” said Dr. Christee Jenlink, dean of NSUBA. “Because NSU graduates more teachers than any other institution in the state and region, it is most appropriate that we host a conference centered on the research-based best practice of learning styles.”

The ILSN conference provides educators with an opportunity to learn of current, research-based information on learning styles and instructional practices.

“The conference complements NSU’s Oklahoma Institute for Learning Styles, which has been a visible, influential source of information and assistance to public school and college instructors in how to enhance learning through the accommodation of student learning styles,” said Dr. Martin Tadlock, provost and vice president for academic affairs at NSU.

The international network has 25 members from 14 countries who are proficient in learning styles and know how to apply them for success in education and business.

Highlighting success stories from around the world, participants will share knowledge about how use of learning styles has improved businesses, school districts and personal lives.

“Teachers, counselors, parents and businesses are now using this successfully – particularly businesses because productivity goes up,” said Dr. Sue Ellen Read, professor of Educational Foundations and Leadership at NSU and director of OIL.
