How do you cater to different learning styles?

Site Online Learning | May 21, 2018

How do you learn? What’s your learning style? As organisations move training and development online, make note of the content you need to convey to your workforce plus the mode of delivery. Sometimes it’s not about what you say, but how you say it.

An effective learning solution recognises that people learn at different rates and with different styles. We are not all built the same. This is particularly relevant when you are in the planning stage of developing online learning solutions.

The major learning styles can be divided into the following categories:

  • Visual learners understand content through pictures, infographics and diagrams
  • Physical learners are “doers” and more alert to the physical world. They learn by doing, physically completing activities and tasks.
  • Aural learners are able to retain information by listening
  • Verbal prefers word based techniques
  • Logical learners are analytical and process driven and strive to understand the reasons behind specific activities
  • Social learners enjoy collaboration, brainstorming as a group and shared learning experience
  • Solitary learners are individual and prefer self-study

What is the secret to creating an effective learning solution for a variety of learning styles?

Invest time in audience analysis and instructional design. Know your learner and know your audience.

Karla Gutierrez’s article ‘The 5 best ways to research your eLearning course target audience’ captures 5 ways to target learning content and develop an effective learning solution.
