Abstract

The knowledge of how individuals learn differently is integrated into many higher educational courses in Western countries. In Thailand there is still a need for hospitality teachers to understand students' different ways of learning so that they can effectively facilitate student learning and skill development in higher education. This research was concerned with identifying the dominant learning styles of hospitality students in Thailand, using a case study approach. The study aimed to understand students' learning styles in order to assist teachers in improving and developing effective and appropriate instructional methods within the teaching and learning process of the hospitality program at the Thai university selected for the case study.
