Abstract:This project explored the issue how the concept of learning style can be considered in instruction. Among vast numbers of learning styles theories there are three which are considered as most influential. These are Kolb’s Experiential Learning Theory, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Apter’s Reversal Theory. Based on these learning styles theories the instructional design guidelines were developed. In order to show how all of them can be considered in instruction, the instructional design guidelines were implemented in the 4C/ID model. The key idea of these guidelines is to provide students with different learning experience when their learning style is matched and mismatched that they become able to fulfil practical tasks regarding learning material. In the second part of the project the effectiveness of the suggested guidelines was investigated. Considering the limitations of the study which was based only on two cases, it can be concluded that suggested guidelines implemented in 4C/ID model are effective.
