The library collects resources which may be useful in differentiating instruction to meet a variety of student learning needs. For example, some students learn well when lecture material is reinforced with video. Others may prefer to hear text spoken as they read. The library has resources that can help with these different learning styles and more. Sample resources are summarized in the Library Resources for Differentiating Instruction Guide.
Interested in identifying different learning styles or different teaching styles to meet different methods of learning? Search in the library catalog for “Differentiation Instruction” or in a journal database (checkout Education Full Text) for the same terms. Most studies in this area are related to prekindergarten through 12th grade. From these studies and how-to materials it may be possible to see ways to include information resources in course materials to increase access to knowledge in higher education.
