Learning Styles


Not all students learn in the same way.
Not all teachers should teach in the same way.

This site is designed to help students and teachers understand learning styles,
improve study habits and design more "learner-friendly" classes.


Please review our extensive list of web links about learning styles, including the following new additions:

Seven Styles of Learning by Elaine Winters (based on Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences): http://www.bena.com/ewinters/styles.html

"
As Interactivity and MultiMedia move away from the 'point and click' mentality of 'learning as action game' perhaps these seven ideas of learning can be used as a jumping off point toward developing new and challenging ways to impart information. If we do this, I think we can accommodate all the intelligences that compose the human mind." Feedback?

Benziger Thinking Styles Assessment by Dr. Katherine Benziger (based on Dr. Carl Jung's Theory of Psychological Types): http://www.benziger.org/

"Here you will find the most recent physiological research corroborating C.G. Jung's theory of Psychological Types. Current physiological and neurological insights enabled Dr. Benziger to extend Jung's work further and to find new ways to apply his theory of "thinking styles" toward our understanding of relationships, work, and psychological and physical health."

DVC Online Style Survey  by Catherine Jester at Diablo Valley College, adapted for the Web by Suzanne Miller: http://silcon.com/~scmiller/lsweb/dvclearn.htm. Feedback?

Four learning styles and strategies are discussed:
The Visual/ Verbal Learning Style
The Visual/ Nonverbal Learning Style
The Tactile/ Kinesthetic Learning Style
The Auditory/ Verbal Learning Style


Please take the online VARK Inventory by Neil Fleming to learn more about what study practices work best for you;. Then return here to discuss your style(s) with others. No matter what your style type, or combination of types,  you will benefit from "knowing thyself" and understanding those around you.
