There is a raging debate of why TDD is or is not the right approach to software development. Often individuals take positions based on their own experiences which are often very context specific. As an educator and a researcher, I have been using test-driven learning when teaching software development to my students. And I have found some striking parallels between students' learning styles and their preference or dislike towards TDD. Can these findings be generalized to a broader population of developer audience? Educators augment their teaching styles to support different learning styles. Can our approach to TDD be similarly augmented to accelerate TDD adoption? I discuss my findings and observations that address some of these questions.
