All learners are not equal. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from many different backgrounds. Some prefer to process information through text, while others want visual support and images. Some learners assimilate information individually; others prefer to work in groups. Some people grasp information intuitively and quickly, whereas others prefer to see a strong sequential path and take time to reflect. In the end, the only thing you can say for sure is that every individual learns in their own particular way. This eLearning course offers a model through which we can better understand how a persons learning preferences may differ. The model suggests that all learners travel through a four stage cycle on their way to full appreciation of a topic or subject (and being able to act on that knowledge). These stages are Attending, Translating, Relating and Understanding. Most people complete the course in about an hour.
