What’s Your Learning Style

Thanks to Helene for forwarding me this great post from Nicole on What I Learned Today about Learning Styles.

As trainers, we need to be aware not only of the many learning styles our participants may have, but of our own learning styles as well. It’s easy to think that eveyone learns in the same way that you do, so you have to be careful not to make that assumption.

Nicole”s post links to a learning styles quiz with 70 quick questions that you rate from 0-3. At the end you receive a visual picture of your learning style. Mine was no surprise: visual, verbal, and social. I wonder if that”s why all my report card from elementary school had comments in the way of “Lori is a great student, but she talks too much.”
