Transcript of Learning Styles

Learning Styles Active & Reflective Learners Sensing and Intuitive Learners Visual and Verbal Learners Sequential and Global Learners Retain & Learn best through doing something active
"Let's try it out and see how it works"
Enjoy group work
has difficulty sitting through lectures
Active Prefer to think about information before acting upon it
"Let's think it through first"
Prefer working alone
Also does finds sitting through lectures difficult Reflective study in groups where members take turns explaining different topics to each other
practice guessing what will be on test and how to answer How can active learners help themselves? while reading/studying stop periodically to review what's been read
think of possible questions or applications
write short summaries of what you've read How can reflective learners help themselves? enjoy learning facts
like solving problems through well established methods
dislike complications and surprises - resent being tested on material not explicitly covered in class
patient with details
good at memorizing facts and doing laboratory work
more practical and careful
little interest in courses that don't apply practically to the "real world" Sensing Learners ask professors for specific examples of how material class applies to the real world
look for specific concepts and procedures related to the material How can sensing learners help themselves? enjoy discovering the possibilities and relationships in what they learn
prefer innovation to repetition
strong at grasping new concepts, comfortable with abstract ideas
tend to work faster
don't enjoy courses that involve a lot of memorization and routine calculations
Intuitive Learners ask professor for theories (in classes dealing with memorization and calculation) that link facts or try to make connections for yourself
take time to entirely read questions on tests before answering them
take the time to go back over answers once done How can intuitive learners help themselves? remember best what they see
pictures, diagrams, flow charts, time lines, films, demonstrations Visual Learners try to find visuals related to the course material
create concept maps to list key points and connecting them with arrows
color code notes How can visual learners help themselves? get the most out of words
written and spoken explanations Verbal Learners write summaries or outlines of course material in your own words
group work can be effective due to listening to other's explanations How can verbal learners help themselves? tend to gain understanding in linear steps
follow logical steps in finding solutions
may not fully understand material but can use understanding of the steps to solve problems related to the material Sequential Learners take time to outline lecture material when studying (reverse outline - making an outline after something has already been written/presented)
relate each topic to something you know How can sequential learners help themselves?
learn in "large jumps"
absorb material "randomly" without seeing connections - connections suddenly appear
can grasp big picture and then use that to solve problems but may have trouble explaining how such a solution was reached Global Learners before beginning chapter, skim to get an overview
instead of spending a short time on each subject every night it may serve better to plan larger blocks of time per subject
relate subjects to what you already know How can global learners help themselves?
