Which type of learner are you?

September 28, 2015

With tomorrow marking the start of the World of Learning exhibition, showcasing the very latest in learning development; we’re looking at the different approaches to learning to help you identify which style works best for you.
After all, it’s been proven that we all take in information in a variety of different ways, and with the start of the academic year in full swing and our students getting stuck into their assignments – finding the most productive method has never been more important.
Take a look below to see if you can match yourself up to these different styles:

  • Kinaesthetic: Forget staring down at a textbook and get stuck in doing! This type of learning requires a hands-on approach. So if participating in an activity improves your recall and memory, then get acting out the play you have to memorise or building an atomic structure.
  • Visual: Never underestimate the power of sight! These types of learners recall information best when in a visual format. So watch a demonstration or get the highlighters out and start colour-coding your work or simply read through all your textbooks.
  • Auditory: These types of learners respond best from sound, so make a recording of yourself reciting your notes and keep playing back until you remember it. Remember practise is key! Also try to limit the background noise to prevent distractions- these types of learners are highly susceptible to external noise, so stay focused.

Regardless of which style works best for you – just remember your assigned personal tutor is there to help you each step of the way to make sure you get the most out of your course!
