Jamshed Khan


The study aimed to find out relationship between satisfaction and learning style of distance learners enrolled at M.Ed. program at Allama Iqbal Open University Islamabad. It was a co relational study and was carried out by selecting a sample of 351 students through stratified random sampling procedure. Students’ satisfaction was measured by using student Satisfaction Survey developed by Strachota (2006) while their learning style was assessed using Grasha-Riechmann Student Learning Styles Scale.

It was found that learning style components were positively correlated with students’ satisfaction except avoidant learning style which was negatively correlated with components of satisfaction. Steps may be taken to develop collaborative and participant learning styles in distance learners. Learners maybe encouraged to increase interaction with each other. Distance learning tutors should be trained for better interaction and communication with students.
