Types of Learners

Visual Research and Blogweek

What type of learner are you?


There are three different types of learning

Visual Learner – learn by seeing and is normally a fast talker. It is able to memorize and remember various information. Learns better in lectures by watching them.

Auditory Learner – learn by hearing and is normally a slow talker. It notices different aspects of speaking. Retains information through hearing and speaking.

Kinaesthetic Learner– learn by feeling or experiencing and is normally the slowest talker. It prefers to demonstrate how to do something rather than verbally explaining it, using the hands on approach to learn new material.

Throwing balls at cups

At the last part of professor Adrian’s class we played a game, each player had to throw one ball, either to the nearest or furthest cup. Scoring the closer cup represented 5 points to your team, and scoring the furthest 10 points. Unfortunately only one of us did it, but of course, the important part of the game was to teach us a lesson in a fun and relaxed way…it was all about confidence and what kind of challenges we propose for ourselves.

To conclude, the experience was very positive, we laughed and socialised with our new colleagues…and then, went to lunch!
