Do you remember having a favorite teacher in school? Maybe they talked calmly, explained things well, or did practical, ‘hands-on’ lessons. Whatever they taught you, it seemed to stick. That could be because their teaching methods matched your learning style.
We all have different, preferred ways of learning, known as learning styles. They’ve been used for many years to help tailor learning to individual strengths.
You’re constantly learning, both at work and in life. Knowing how you learn can help you decide how to approach things like training and development. Recent research into how human brains learn, however, has shown that tailoring learning to individual strengths may not be the best approach. So, if you’re a trainer, it’s important to know how to get the balance right.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
• Understand what learning styles are
