The Empire Strikes VAK: how far does this rabbit hole go? – Tom Bennett

Last week I wrote about my surprise that VAK and learning Styles was still being advocated and taught in a PGCE course. It was more of an eye-roll than a polemic (though to be fair even my sneezes sound like polemics). But the reaction to that post has convinced me that the problem is even worse than I had thought, as I received message after message confirming that the beast still prowled the campuses and colleges of education. I thought VAK was all but exterminated, like Polio. But like a virus, the idea of it has propagated and put down deep roots.
