The Institute for Learning Styles Research (ILSR) is a group of researchers, instructors, and individuals interested in the art and science of learning and teaching. The ILSR is a not-for-profit organization "dedicated to fostering research and development of learning and teaching." The particular area of interest is the matching of learning styles knowledge with teaching strategies and techniques.


The group formally organized in 1996 after meeting informally for several years to discuss perceptual learning style theory and the MMPALT. Once chartered, the ILSR began revising the MMPALT-II to improve the testing sequence and the MMPALT-III was completed. Institute for Learning Styles Research conferences are held biannually during the winter and summer.
