Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)

This is a study on learning styles based on the Kolb model (1984). It was conducted on a sample of Mexican higher education students, to develop a picture of their learning styles at three different stages during their studies. The intention was to determine whether there were differences between students majoring in educational sciences and law, during the initial, intermediate and final semesters. The sample included 212 students aged 18 to 25 years from the Hidalgo State Autonomous University. All students responded to the Kolb Learning Style Inventory and a demographics questionnaire. The paper presents this research project's first results. There were differences found in learning styles across programs and semesters. Results are discussed from the Kolb approach on experiential learning. [For complete volume, see ED567118.]
