Title: Culture influences learning style and self-perception: some insights for teachers
Authors: Tan, Ai-Girl
Issue Date: 1996
Citation: Teaching and Learning, 16(2),117-126
Abstract: There are various learning styles and different kinds of self perception. In part one of this article, two learning styles, group and individual, are illustrated by referring to the stories of Taro, a Japanese student, and Wolfgang, a German student. The type of self-perception that a person possesses is likely to be influenced by the type of cultural environment. This argument is discussed in part two. Part three focuses on the transfer of knowledge. Knowledge should be appropriately modified according to the level of understanding and to the culture of the students. Individual differences exist across cultures as well as in a culture.
