Which Learning Style Suits You?

BY GREG BULL  |  POSTED IN GENERAL NEWS

As human beings we all learn new things in our own way. We are all so unique and individual so why should the way we process information be any different. We all have our own ways of filtering the information and these ways of learning are what enable us to gain an understanding of a certain topic. By utilising these styles we can work out how we learn best and adapt information to suit our requirements.

   

There are 3 main learning styles, Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic.

Visual is often associated with pictures and images which include graphs, video's and diagrams. A person who adopts this learning style will quite often process information easier by memorising and visualising it in their heads. Some people use mind mapping as a process for recalling information, associating facts with objects in their minds. Here we just had to mention Sherlock Holmes and his Mind Palace.

Auditory relates to information that is read aloud or listened to. As children we are taught phrases such as Never Eat Shredded Wheat (North, East, South, West) in order to remember important facts or sequences. This is Auditory learning. People with this particular learning style may find speaking to themselves out loud a good way to relay information.

Kinesthetic is a long word which essentially means 'hands on'. This learning style embraces learning 'on the job' whereby the information is processed best by giving it a go. Often when starting at a new job people will learn best by trying the task themselves with guidance from a colleague. This can also work in training courses with role play situations.

Our training courses aim to cover all 3 of these learning styles. Our tutors will explain information full and in open discussions (Auditory) with the delegates, they have presentations, handouts and manuals (Visual), encourage role play in some courses and provide worked examples whereby the delegates can bring forward their own experiences with advice and guidance from the tutors (Kinesthetic).
