I find that our tactile learners struggle somewhat in lecture class; however they soar in the laboratory courses. The students enjoy the hands-on experience and state that they are able to remember much better when they can perform a task instead of just hearing it in a lecture.

This has been my experience as well so I try to create a blend for all students so they can use their different learning preferences at different times in the course.

I really like this response. My students must first learn the concepts with lecture and power-point type presentation. It is in the lab, where they actually practice the skills, that the ideas are understood and imbedded in cognitive and physical memory. The combination will result in success in the field.
