You have probably noticed that when you try to learn something new that
you prefer to learn by listening to someone talk to you about the
information. Some people prefer to read about a concept to learn it;
others need to see a demonstration of the concept.
Learning Style Theory proposes that different people learn in
different ways and that it is good to know what your own preferred
learning style is.
Some links have been provided below for you to follow to learn
more about learning styles. There are a variety of instruments
that help you identify your learning style and you may prefer
to do them on line, or you may want to stop in the Career Service
Office, Campus Center 21, to talk to a real person and use a real
pencil to fill out a Learning Style Inventory! But first, check
