Multiple Intelligence Course

Multiple Intelligence Course – Bourtsoukli Language Centre

The concept of multiple intelligences encompasses various ways individuals learn and gather information. These intelligences span from linguistic and numerical to visual and musical, extending to social interactions, self-reflection, physical movement, and harmony with nature. Recognizing and utilising these intelligences in students can aid teachers in adjusting their teaching styles and suggesting suitable career paths.

The adoption of Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory (MI theory) has rapidly increased worldwide, forming a part of national education policies in numerous countries.


This course delves into the realm of Multiple Intelligences. Educators will explore Howard Gardner’s MI theory and learning strategies to tailor lessons and deliver innovative teaching approaches that benefit learners. The MI Theory does not confine individuals to a single intelligence; rather, it proposes that everyone possesses capabilities in all eight intelligences. Most individuals fall somewhere between, exhibiting varying levels of proficiency across different intelligences.

  • Each individual possesses all eight intelligences.
  • Most people can develop each intelligence to a satisfactory level.
  • Intelligences often collaborate in complex ways.
  • Numerous intelligent approaches exist within each category.

An essential aspect of MI theory is the potential for individuals to develop all their intelligences to a reasonably proficient level. Course participants will have the opportunity to undergo a standardised online MI test in a computer lab, providing them with personalised results in a detailed 12-page report along with a comprehensive analysis. This test is available in various languages, and participants can arrange to become test providers for their students in their respective countries.
