Learning Styles site Individuals learn best in many different ways, sometimes using a variety of learning styles, but teachers and trainers may not always present information & learning experiences in the ways that best suit you. Forms of learning through workshops, practical activities or through informal methods may suit some people more than others. Sometimes, people feel they are not good at learning when it may be just that they don't know their own learning styles. These selected websites suggest ways of recognising a variety of learning styles and making best use of them. If you are on a course or learning programme, it may be useful to discuss these issues with your tutors or advisers.
