Discover my learning preferences and limiting beliefs

How do you prefer to learn, what takes you more energy for you to learn and how does this help or hinder me?

The research on learning styles needs a significant shake up. Dr Julia Atkin has been a pioneer in this space in Australia for over the last 30 years. It is helpful to understand our preferred learning styles, but this does not necessarily help us improve our learning capacity.

This is because we need to be able to adjust our preferences to the task at hand. You may be aware of the Visual, Kinaesthetic, Auditory styles of learning. Dr Atkin's work takes this a step further to investigate the ways our brain's prefer to process information. When we combine the learning modalities (VAK) with an understanding of how our brain learns from a neurological perspective, we gain a greater insight into what helps and hinders us when learning.

The key message of this module is that we need all four styles to learn effectively irrelevant of our preferences.

Four learning modalities will be identified

  • Kinaesthetic-personal learning
  • Visual-conceptual learning
  • Written-Symbolic learning
  • Auditory-sequential learning

  • Personal report identifying the learning attributes impacting your success (emailed 48hrs after completion)
  • Quizzes to check your knowledge
  • Discussion board for personalised feedback

I am delighted that my Year 8 son did this course. We both found the information on his learning preferences and styles very insightful and it has helped him work out ways to motivate himself and to be more engaged at school. Thanks, Rosie, I'd say we'll be back for a refresher before Year 12!
