Abstract

One of the most serious challenges that educators face is improving the level of student satisfaction with the curriculum and learning environment.  A big question arises in the hotel management curriculum all the time is whether a particular teaching method would enhance student satisfaction. Learning outcomes are statements that specify what learners will know or be able to do as a result of learning activity or learning experience are usually expressed as knowledge, skills or attitudes.  According to Swanson(1995), learning styles are a particular set of behaviours and attitudes related to the learning context.  The VARK mode (visual, Aural, Red/Write and Kinaesthetic) was developed by Fleming(1987).  This model and complimentary identification  instruments classifies trainers by their preferred mode of interaction with students basd on input stimulus and output performances.
