Are you someone who prefers to read a map rather than ask for directions? Do you remember information better when you write it down or when it involves a hands-on activity?
People process information in different ways. The manner in which we learn influences the way we stay focused, internalise and recall new information and skills. There is no right or wrong way to learn. Some of us may have a preference for a particular learning style, whilst others can use several learning styles and adapt accordingly.
Our preferences are influenced by several factors such as the environment, emotions, individual or group learning and physiological factors.
We recognise the importance of using the complete range of learning styles in our pedagogical approach so that we can contribute positively to the individual’s learning experience.
During our interactive training session, we encourage participants to share their own experiences and express their point of view.
However, we do not solely rely on group discussions; we also use experimental tools and techniques such as:
Our experience has shown that by reproducing real-life situations in a safe but challenging environment and by providing a balance of different learning styles, we can create an environment in which everyone can learn effectively.
Our aim is to create a learning experience that is memorable, useful on the job, and that will instil a desire to continue learning.
