Learning Styles
Explanation of 3 models
What are learning styles?
An individual's natural or habitual pattern of acquiring and processing information
Common ways people learn
Guide the way you learn
Change the way you internally represent experiences, recall information, and even the words you choose to use.
Neil Fleming's Model:
Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic or the VAK Model

Honey & Mumford Model
Prefers activities that allow them to watch, think, and review what has happened. They need expert analysis and examples.
Prefers to think things through, step-by-step. Loves lectures, analogies, systems, case studies, models and readings. They generally do not like speaking with experts.
Has a strong need & desire to apply learnings an theory to real world settings. They need to make sure they "work." Abstract concepts and games are useless.
Your learn by doing group. They love the challenge of new experiences & prefer to work in groups, They like to dive into new experiences head on and try them out.
Activities for Relfectors
Paired discussions
Self-analysis questionnaires
1:1 feedback
Activities for Theorists
Theoretical application
Activities for Pragmatists
Learning application - "How does this apply to real life?
Case Studies
Problem solving
Activities for Activists
Group discussions
Role play
David Kolb's Experiential Learning Theory Model
this student...
is great at looking at a situation with different points of view
likes to gather information
interested in art and people
imaginative and emotional
in the Classroom...
loves to work in groups
great at brainstorming sessions
need personalized feedback
Kolb on Experiential Learning
Learn by seeing and taking detailed notes
Prefer to learn through observations of what they see
Visual Learner
Auditory Learner
Learn by listening and Speaking
Lectures, discussions and debates are their preferred way to learn information
Kinesthetic Learner
Learn through movement
Prefer to learn through hands-on experiences and physical activities
Everyone has a preferred mode of learning through experience.
Where those preferences fall in Kolb's model demonstrates your
learning style. 4 main profiles emerge.
this student...
like abstract concepts
less interested in people
can put large amounts of information into logical, concise forms
in the classroom...
great at science
prefer reading and lectures
need time to think things through
this student...
good at finding practical uses for ideas
great at problem solving
prefers technical tasks over social issues
in the classroom...
prefer simulations and labs
needs practical applications
likes to experiment with new ideas
this student...
"hands-on" is king
loves getting involved in new experiences
act on intuition and gut feelings
ask for information before analyzing themselves
in the classroom...
action oriented
loves group work
goal setter
will try different approaches

Managers love it, it's flexible, continuous view
No consideration for personalities, not specific to the individual

Honey & Mumford's Model:
A Graphical Representation
Concrete Experience
Someone has an experience
Reflective Observation
They reflect on that experience
Abstract Conceptualism
They drawn their own conclusions of that experience
Active Experimentation
From their conclusions, they put their theroies into action and test them

Overview & Objectives:
In this presentation, we will explore the basic concept of learning styles then go in depth with three learning style models; the VAK model, Kolb's model, and Honey & Mumford's model. Each one takes various behavioral and psychological concepts and incorporates them into the ways adults learn.

Define learning styles as a concept
Explore the variations of the VAK model
Review the basis and concept of David Kolb's Experiential Learning Theory
Examine Honey and Mumford's model as a variation of Kolb's theory
Engage the group in self exploration and discovery of your own learning style preferences
What do you think?
Does one model stand out more than the others? Would you like to compare and contrast where you fall in each? 3 assessment tests are provided in the discussion board. Please take 1 or all of them.
What were your results in each test?
Do the results ring true to you?
Which model do you prefer? Why?
What do you see as the major differences between the models?
Is there a model that would work for everyone?
