My Learning Style

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/cll/skills/personalacaddevelopment/learningstyles/

Aim of the Learning Styles activity
  • To enable you to understand your own approach to learning better
  • To adapt your learning strategy to be most effective during your time as a student at Warwick.
Result:
  • I had a strong preference for being an Activist
  • I had a strong preference for being a Reflector
  • I had a moderate preference for being a Theorist
  • I had a moderate preference for being a Pragmatist

My strongest preference was found to be: Reflector (68%)

This Learning Styles activity was devised by Warwick Skills

I was told i had a bit of each style but predominantly reflector(68%). I did think that a lot of the description suited me but I do find these things a bit like horoscopes. You can almost fit yourself to any one!! I strongly believe that you should adapt the way you learn to the task at hand and the team you are working with. I am always open to new styles of working but dont think this exercise particularly benifited me

How do I learn?

I have a mixed way of learning depending on time, how interested i am in a subject and the volume of work involved. If I really enjoy a subject or feel a bit unsure of a topic, I will generally do some background reading but often I end up surface learning facts. I definitely find I remember topics a lot better if I have deepened my knowledge. I also find working with friends and discussing topics very beneficial so I am hoping that the group work will work well for me. I realise that medicine is a lot more than learning facts and I will need to fully understand my topics and apply them so I think I may have to adjust my style of learning.
