Recognizing Learning Styles - Tisch 5-30

People learn in different ways. There are variety of teaching and study approaches that can appeal to specific learning preferences for aural, visual, and written communication. Understanding how you learn aids in developing appropriate study strategies. A person’s intelligence strength can help determine his/her preferred learning style, work style and natural strengths. Understanding how you and others learn is a critical competency for teachers, trainers, educators, and anyone interested in helping others learn.
