Learn to Understand How People Learn

When you understand how different people learn in different ways; you then have the tools to better facilitate teaching work skills. 

Well established and known research has shown that people learn in different ways and therefore we can ‘classify’ people as different types based on their learning style. We can also define different learning styles and different intelligences.  

Some important researchers, psychologists and theorists in the field of learning include Carl Jung (1923), Isabel Briggs Myer, developed ways of classifying people into different ‘types’. Their work formed what is known as the Myers-Briggs Types Indicator Assessment which is a psychometric questionnaire which can measure people’s perceptions and how we apply these to our decision making processes. 

Later in the 20th century others researchers and psychologists include David Kolb, Peter Honey, Alan Mumford and Bernice McCarthy, Leo Vygotsky, B.F. (Burrhus, Frederic) Skinner, Jean Piaget, Howard Gardner, Erik Erickson, Abraham Maslow and Edward de Bono further developed ideas about how different types of people learn in different ways.  

Applying Established Theories in Teaching and Learning 

We know for a fact that it is difficult, if not impossible, for teachers and trainers to provide the optimal learning opportunity to all participants of a class, when they are being taught as a group of identical learners. 

The most effective teaching will allow each individual to learn in the way that best suits them. The best workplace trainer will do more than just demonstrate or speak, and expect the learner to absorb. They must enter a dialogue with each learner, and through that two way communication, facilitate learning in whatever way will work best for each individual.
