What’s your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group or an interactive setting? Or one-on-one? Do you retain information best through lectures or visuals, or simply by reading books?
I was in college when I discovered the issues of a learning style.
I quickly learned I’m a visual and auditory learner with the ability to retain anything read or written to be given back for testing.
Tactile learning has been beneficial for my career, and I found it relatively easy to assimilate and retain the information after repeated use.
Group learning is useful, yet for the past fifteen years or more, I have enjoyed online learning at my pace and preferred it rather than a classroom setting.
My now adult children provided me with the opportunities to experience how different learning styles can be.
One child learns much like myself, and the other utilizes auditory, visual, and interaction with students and teachers to absorb the lessons.
I witness my children discover and develop their learning styles throughout elementary, middle, high school, and college.
Witnessing their desires to learn and grow as they expanded their knowledge to build upon their postgraduate educations has brought me full circle in the discovery of learning styles.
I hope, I live long enough to explore half of what I desire to learn and discover. 🙂
