Adult Multiple Intelligences

Resources for Teachers/Tutors


Research shows that instructional practices inspired by Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory have resulted in high levels of authentic instruction and student engagement. Given these findings, you may be interested in exploring MI for use in your instruction. If you would like to explore MI theory and its implications for instruction and program practices, select one of the following topics.

Each self-study has three steps:

Step 1: Read the related research.
Step 2: Reflect on this research and your practice.
Step 3: Focus on an aspect of your practice.

If you wish to devote several sessions to the exploration of MI theory and its implications for your practice, consider organizing a study circle or seminar with other practitioners in your program or region, or join a mentor teacher group.
