Learning Style Preferences

Learning Style Preferences:

In the 1970s, researchers advanced the idea the each individual possessed an preferred way to interact with new information to learn it and created various models to categorize learning styles and teaching styles adapted to this new view of learning.  The idea of learning styles has enjoyed considerable enthusiasm among educators, but recent research has not supported the theory that learning outcomes improve by matching instructional methods to a student's preferred learning style.  It is unlikely that your instructors will match their instruction to your preferred learning style.

But understanding how you learn best - how you prefer to approach a learning task - will enable you to approach mastering new information, new material in a way that makes sense to you.  This helps you study more effectively.  

Take this learning styles assessment to help you understand the best ways for you to study.
