Learning Styles

Just like every professor has a different
style of teaching you have a different style of learning. Maybe you are a read and write learner or
you prefer a professor who always holds open ended discussions or maybe you are a kinesthetic
learner in a class with a 100% lecture. The best part of knowing your different style
of learning is that there are a ton of ways to alter material so that it works for you. Here’s some tools that you can use to modify
material depending on your style. If you are a visual learner, try diagramming
the information or turn visuals back into words, then replacing those words with symbols
or images. If you are an auditory learner, try expanding
your notes by talking with people from your class or from a text source. Record your summarized notes and listen to
them or explain the topics to someone else. It might also help to read your notes aloud. If you are a read and write learner, try rewording
and copying your notes several times. It might also help to write ideas in your
own words. If you are a kinesthetic learner, find pictures,
images or videos that represent an idea. Or even talk about your notes and lectures
with another kinesthetic person. These learning styles are very different and
we need to find the one that works best for you.
