Here is a simple view of one of the most famous Learning Styles theories.
Take a look at the diagram below and see which speech bubble comes in to your head when you are trying to learn something new.
Do you think you fit in to one of these boxes or do you flex your approach depending on the situation?
Let us know in the comments below.
It is important to acknowledge that whilst Learning Styles are widely accepted & integrated in to the Learning & Development field there is little scientific research that actually supports that designing learning interventions to meet different 'Learning Styles' makes a difference to the learning outcome.
So where does this leave us?
Take a look at this article on learning styles
The key thing is to be aware and to find what works for you in terms of style and technique.
Do we all have ONE learning style? Do we have this same learning style ALL THE TIME? Do we change over time or is this a constant do you think?
And I guess most importantly, what does all this mean to the way that we design and facilitate learning in our organisations?
Would be interested to hear your views.
