Andrea Cripps

"I worked with many great athletes and coaches, allowing me the opportunity to gain experience and confidence that without, I wouldn’t be where I am today. LSSU not only gave me my undergraduate education but I gained lifelong friends and connections that will go with me in whatever endeavor that I attempt. Athletic Training at LSSU changed my life and changed my goal in life for the better. "

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!
