GOMEZ-TERAN, Óscar Ángel et al. Learning styles in the students of Physical Education and Sports Science of the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e043.  Epub Nov 17, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

Learning styles are methods that are used to organize cognitions about the world, to better understand it. A style is not an aptitude, but a way, but a way of thinking and preferred way of using the skill that are possessed. With this antecedents, Alonso and Honey refer four basic styles of learning: Active, Reflective, Theoretical and Pragmatic. Explained this, the main objective of this work was to document the style of preferential learning in students of Physical Education and Sports Science of the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro. The study was Non-experimental, descriptive-transversal, and all the students of the aforementioned career were included. For data collection, the "Honey-Alonso Learning Styles Questionnaire" was used, consisting of 20 items for each of the four learning styles. Students who did not attend the data collection day or who did not accept participation were excluded from of the investigation, the questionnaires not answered in their entirety were eliminated. To perform the descriptive statistical analysis the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences program (version 20) will be established and the Honey- Alonso algorithms will be used to establish the predominant type of style. At the time of the application of the instrument, the students were explained the objectives of the inquiry and verbal consent and voluntary participation were requested. It was observed that the active learning style had a preference between high and very high (62.75%); however, the preference in the reflective style was low or very low (52.94%). In relation to the preference for the pragmatic and theoretical styles, this was moderate (55.56% and 52.94% respectively). The predominant learning style was active with 67.32%, a situation that ignores the reflective learning style that according to Honey and Alonso is the preferred one in careers in the humanities area.
