To find out what kind of learner you are, it is important that we recognise that everyone learns differently. Every student has a preference on how he or she captures, comprehends and retains information. For example, some people learn better with supporting images and illustrations while others may prefer hearing lectures or be hands on through actual activities.
Everyone has his or her own learning style. The key to learning better is to know your dominant learning style so you can create study habits that will help you learn more effectively and efficiently.
Psychologists have developed different learning models and one of the most popular learning theories is the VARK model with four kinds of learners. Find out more about them below.
Our learning style has more influence on our study habits than we realise. Now you can gain a better perspective on how these learning styles and techniques can be put to good use and incorporated into your learning process. We hope that this can help you develop the study habits that fit your learning style. Good luck!
