One hundred and sixty-three dental hygiene students and 26 dental hygiene faculty participated in a study to examine the relationship between learning styles and preference for 13 instructional activities. The results indicated that most students and faculty were located in Kolb's "accommodator" and "diverger" learning style categories. These two learning style groups differed in their preferences for group-oriented activities. Faculty were able to predict their students' predominant learning styles.
