Catering to Learning Styles

In this session of the Brain-Friendly Training series, you will explore a huge range of learning styles, and learn the appropriate training strategy to use for each student. Designed with trainers and other educators in mind, its goal is to accommodate the different learning styles in order to better engage them and enhance their learning.

People are going to have certain learning styles, given that they learn best when they use a certain manner to take in information. Recognising that there are preferred ways of learning, along with tweaking your teaching to respond to those preferences can boost learning immensely, by matching their style to your delivery.

Differences in learning can certainly be a strength that is useful in devising teaching strategies to make your training/teaching sessions more effective. By choosing to incorporate learning styles into your teaching, you become more mindful on what goes inside a learner’s mind when being taught.

What You Will Learn

Training Techniques

  • The difference between visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile (VAKT) learning styles, multiple intelligences, and global learners
    The different learning styles, multiple intelligences and the presence of global learners point to how different each brain handles information from person to person. While others may be at their peak to learn when presented with their preferred manner of learning, others may not be as receptive.
  • Why matching the learning style of your students is critical to a successful training
    Knowing what specific learning style your learner has can impact training greatly, since it provides a way to get knowledge from trainer to student effectively. It is like having a gear of the same or greater size drive a certain gear, which multiplies the power applied to it.
  • How to identify the unique learning styles of your students – and what this means for your training
    Spotting how your student(s) learns would be useful in coming up with a training style suited to one or all of them. What it means for your training is that by doing so, you would be maximising the manner where your student learns best, allowing you to embed knowledge into their minds.
  • The most effective and appropriate strategies to complement each learning style and maximise each student’s potential
    Complementary teaching for each learning style is in a way assisting the learning of students, by delivering knowledge through a way that best suits them. By doing so, you not only ease the learning process but make them understand information effectively.
