Learning Styles: Work smarter, not harder in the classroom.

Each person uses all available senses (sight, sound, touch and smell) when learning. These senses are called learning modalities and we use them in processing and retaining information. Some of these senses we use more efficiently than others in the learning process and are identified as our individual learning style or modality preference .

There are three main types of learning styles: visual, kinesthetic and auditory. It is important to know your learning style and to put into practice the learning strategies below. You can visit the Office of Testing and Career Development at the CF Ocala Campus, Bryant Student Union, Room 205, and Citrus Learning and Conference Center, to take a free inventory to help you determine your learning style.
