I was pumped to break into my salad for one reason…
I loved the inclusion of the leftover sloppy joe meat in my salad. The vinegary flavor of the ‘joes really kicked the flavor up a notch.
Along with the sloppy joe meat, my salad included butter lettuce, leftover roasted broccoli, carrots and Italian dressing.
As I briefly mentioned this morning, at work today I’ve been training a new writer and working to get her assimilated into our office environment.
As I was preparing notes on everything I wanted to be sure to teach our new employee, I started thinking about different learning styles and the best way to train her and help her learn the ins and outs of her new job.
For me, I learn best by doing. I’m definitely a kinesthetic learner.
In college, I would study for tests by making myself multi-page study guides full of what I thought was the important information. In the end, I didn’t review the study guides all that much. It was the process of creating the study guides that helped me most.
In my current job, I’ve learned the most by diving into projects and writing website content. Doing research and regurgitating that information into understandable content really helps me digest the information and learn it for myself.
I know others learn best in different ways. There are visual learners who learn best by seeing and auditory learners who learn best by hearing, among many learning styles.
So, what about you?
What is your learning style? Visual? Auditory? Kinesthetic/Do-er? Something totally different?
