I wanted to find the most beneficial method for students to understand their writing revisions.
Based on their learning styles tendencies, I compared the their VAK Learning Styles Self-Assessment Questionnaire (Swinburne University of Technology) results with their method of submission (online or in-person) to the Writing Center.
Those with visual learning tendencies 15% submitted online and 15% in-person. By highlighting errors, online revisions appeal to visual tendencies. Those with auditory learning tendencies 7% submitted in-person compared to 11% who submitted online. These tendencies can benefit from either online or in-person by reading edited notes out loud. Those with kinesthetic learning tendencies, 31% submitted in-person, while 8% submitted online. With Writing Center tutors, students with kinesthetic learning tendencies preferred the face-to-face interaction.
For the future, students will be encouraged to submit papers, either online or in-person, to the Writing Center based on their learning style tendencies.
