There is a strong tie between learning styles, teaching styles, and personality profile. We gain one indicator through the use of personality profiles and we begin to form an intuitive sense of what makes good practice, good teaching. As more colleges and universities move into online learning and course delivery this sense of good practice begins to come under scrutiny. How is online learning improved or made worse by the instructors teaching style and the students learning style? Teachers must now conceptualize what the learner will experiences when time and distance are separate. This session will focus on the relationship between personality profiles and instructional delivery in a technological age of online learning. Participants will take a short self-scoring survey that links their personality profile to their teaching methodologies. The discussion will draw conclusion toward best practice in light of their individual instructional methods.
