Registered author(s):

    From the viewpoint of styles as indicators of learning quality in higher education teaching the text considers the issue of putting into a context and understanding of the notion of higher education quality. Relations of meta-theoretical conceptions of pedagogy are considered, interwoven in theoretical grounds of didactic concepts; the relationship between didactics and postmodernism has been dealt with, as well as unexplained relation between postmodernism and constructivism; postmodernism as a new philosophy and constructivism as a general theory of cognition are considered in regard to emancipatory didactics which is theoretical grounds of participatory epistemology and learning styles as indicators of higher education teaching. Th e text gives a fi nding of a previously conducted explorative research on the correspondence between learning styles ad discourse methods in higher education teaching, involving 2nd and 3rd year students (N-114) enrolled at Teacher Training Faculty of Belgrade University – teaching department in Vrsac. The finding in question refers to the statement that learning styles correspond to discourse method and that the students with highly expressed dimensions of a meaningful style (search for the essence and understanding it; raising questions after reading…) understand discourse as a teaching method better due to the possibility to exchange opinions, express their own ideas, better understanding of contents, connecting knowledge…) which could be considered a possible guideline towards the culture of learning quality within higher education teaching.
