This section of the GDN Discussion Papers addresses the question of the suitability of learning cycles and learning styles. The main focus is on Kolb's experiential learning theory. The section contains two papers. The first, by Mick Healey and Alan Jenkins, reviews the main features of Kolb's theory and discusses how it can be applied in geography in higher education. The second paper, by David Robotham, presents a critical review of learning style theory with particular reference to Kolb's theory.
Readers are invited to send their comments on these two papers to Phil Gravestock for adding to the GDN Web pages.

The set of Discussion Papers prepared for the Internet Discussion on "International Perspectives on Learning and Teaching Geography in Higher Education", also fit the aims of this section of the GDN pages. These papers were written for a pre-symposium meeting of the Association of American Geographers' (AAG) Annual Conference, which took place on 23 March 1999. Although the discussion and comments were used primarily to inform the pre-symposium debate, we are still interested in collecting comments on these papers.
Please send your comments to Phil Gravestock.
