We all learn differently. It’s a definite that you would learn differently to the next person and learning styles are one of the most commonly talked about concepts in adult learning.
As a trainer, people will often hear the ol’ VAK concepts to death in their TAE program or even a public speaking workshop. There are many conflicting ideas about it, whether the learning styles are valid or not, or if there is legitimacy to them. Yet, there are clear signs that all people learn differently and the better we are at catering to people’s different learning needs the more information people will absorb and take in.
Key topics include:
- What are the learning styles?
- How to identify a student’s learning style via – Their Appearance, their behaviour in the classroom, their occupation and the language that they use.
- How to feed their learning needs.
- What happens if you don’t teach in a way that they need most?
- How to make sure every learner walks away fulfilled from your training session.
- How to structure your sessions to integrate each of the learning styles.
- The timing that you should allocate to each learning style throughout your session.
