There is a difference in the way women and men learn. .
What are those differences? I have not been under the impression that learning style is gender specific. I ,for instance, am a kinesthetic learner with a bit of reading. Another woman I know is more visual and yet another is an audio learner. I believe males also fit these various learning styles.
A good teacher will help a student to find their best learning style and help them to make use of it within the parameters of the class.
