Staff developers are presented with an introduction to learning styles, that is, how people learn new or difficult information. When staff development is based on a learning-style approach, the same information is introduced in alternative ways and participants can choose to learn through the resources or approaches most closely matched to their style. The editors have compiled many interesting and practical strategies that presenters in staff development sessions can use to involve participants in experimenting with new ideas. These methods will provide enrichment, resulting in a successful staff development.
