ABSTRACT

Everyone learns, but not all learn in the same way. Understanding of learning styles theory offers opportunities to manage the learning process better and knowing an individual's learning styles is also useful in formulating effective teaching strategy. Many investigated and reviewed the impacts of gender, cultural differences, and variations on disciplines to learning style. This study compares the impacts of learning experiences on learning style between students with similar backgrounds at different studying locations. Data were collected from questionnaires for the Index of Learning Style (ILS) that has been developed by Felder-Solomon. A total of 841 students are included in this study comprising students from Malaysia and China. The findings indicate that changes in students' learning style preferences are conceivable as they gain different learning experiences at a different studying location.
