Abstract [en]

This article compares teachers' and students´ learning styles profiles at the two major orientations (vocational and academic programs) in secondary high school in Denmark, to explore differences and similarities. The study involved 30 secondary school teachers and 152 high school student. The learning styles assessment PEPS was used to identify 20 different traits. Five groups were compared and analyzed by using F-test and analysis of variance, ANOVA. The research questions were as follows: to what extent are differences in learning styles between teachers and students and between the two study areas? The statistical analysis showed that the teachers have a greater need for warm temperature, and are more conformity compared with the students. The students have more need for structure, are more group-oriented, are more tactile, need more intake and movements and are more alert in the afternoon, compared with the teachers.. The four student groups show some statistically significant differences between them. The vocational students differ more from teachers than their academic peers. The results are of value for people involved in the planning of teacher education, practicing teachers and students themselves. It is a critical skill for teachers to understand their own teaching style and students' learning styles in the mission  a school for all. The results indicate the need for expanded educational strategies and an in-depth didactic discussion of the practical activities.
