365 Writing Prompts: What’s your learning style?

What’s your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-to-one?  Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading books?

Learning in a group while it seems to be a good way to learn, it gets boring when one know it all continues to talk forgetting there are others who may have something to say about the subject.

I encountered this in meetings when two teachers would start talking about unrelated things and waste everyone’s time, those were the times I felt we were not learning much.

As regards one-on- one it only happens when one has specific problems which is dealt by the instructor after school hours. I didn’t have to stay after school.

If there was anything I missed I’d either read books to find my answer,or read my notes, most of the time I take notes of important points during the lecture then read  them later to make sure I know what the topic was about.

I prefer to read books, to me books are the best way to learn, I can read it alone in my room with no interference from anyone!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. This is interesting, as I just returned from a week-long instructor’s trainer course in conflict resolution. A big part of the instruction was how to teach others, particularly adults.

    The instructor’s premise is that “lecture is dead,” and hence we did a bit of talking, using powerpoints, etc., but mostly, we did activity after activity. We focused on there being a difference between “education” and “training,” the latter being far more about being able to perform skills, particularly in challenging environments.

    All good wishes,

    robert
