The criteria for the design of a pedagogical scenario for each learning and teaching style are defined and described. A scheme of the pedagogical scenario of electronic educational environment based on the Anthony Gregorc’s model is introduced; the results of experimental testing carried out with the students of the Applied Mathematics and Informatics Department to determine the effect of pedagogical scenario on improving the quality of students’ training in university are presented.
