Alum Success

Elaina Marinik

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

What Learning Style Does Your Student Use?

People process and absorb information in very different ways. And, as your student digs into finals this month, chances are that his learning style is what helped him get this far.

As an interesting point of conversation, consider talking with your student about learning styles and how he feels that he learns best. Share your own learning style, too, as a way to help him get to know more about you. The different options are as follows:

  • Visual Learners. Approximately 65 percent of the population learns visually, responding well to visual cues such as pictures, notes and diagrams.
  • Auditory Learners. Approximately 30 percent of the population tends to retain information after hearing it.
  • Kinesthetic Learners. Approximately 5 percent of the population picks things up through touch or imitation.
Of course, mixtures of learning styles can also be used. We all need different stimuli in order to learn so, why not talk about the how-tos of learning with your student–preferably after finals are over!
