DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACH: INCLUSIVENESS OF LEARNING STYLES IN BUSINESS EDUCATION FOR SKILLS ACQUISITION IN DIGITAL ERA

175

ABSTRACT

This research project aims to explore the application of differentiated instructional approaches in business education to promote inclusiveness and cater to diverse learning styles in the digital era. With the rapid advancements in technology and the increasing emphasis on digital skills, it is crucial for business educators to adopt instructional methods that accommodate the varying needs and preferences of learners. The study will employ a mixed-methods research design, integrating qualitative and quantitative data collection methods. Qualitative data will be obtained through interviews and focus groups with business educators, while quantitative data will be collected through surveys administered to students. The research objectives are to examine the current practices of differentiated instruction in business education, identify the learning styles prevalent among business students, and evaluate the effectiveness of differentiated instructional approaches in enhancing skills acquisition.

The findings of this research project will contribute to the existing literature by providing empirical evidence on the inclusiveness of differentiated instructional approaches in business education. The results will shed light on the suitability and effectiveness of various instructional strategies, such as flexible grouping, varied assessments, and personalized learning, in promoting student engagement, motivation, and skill development. Additionally, the study will explore the role of technology in supporting differentiated instruction and its impact on the acquisition of digital skills in the business context. The implications of this research project extend beyond academia. The findings will inform business educators, instructional designers, and policymakers about the importance of embracing inclusiveness and catering to diverse learning styles in the digital era. By adopting differentiated instructional approaches, educators can create an environment that fosters active learning, accommodates individual differences, and prepares students for the demands of the modern digital workplace.
