Leveraging Learning Styles to Improve Student Learning: The Interactive Learning Model and Learning Combination Inventory

This paper describes the Interactive Learning Model, and a related instrument called the Learning Combination Inventory, which identifies those patterns of processing that learners rely upon as well as those patterns that learners avoid. It further reports the results of an exploratory study using MIS students, the purpose of which was to see if a correlation exists between those learning patterns that a student relies upon and their success in two different types of learning activities. The results suggest that if students understood their own learning patterns they could develop specific strategies to become efficient and effective life-long learners.
