Learning/Teaching Styles & Techniques
Using the following questions as a guide, discuss the different styles of learning.
These questions and topics are meant only to serve as a guide.
1.What motivates people to learn? Is motivation different at different times/circumstances of one's life? Does motivation change as you get older? How do life transitions (entering and completing educational programs, marriage, job changes) affected one's motivation to learn?
2. Discuss different ways of learning. Do some people learn some things a certain way and other things a different way? What different teaching/learning methods/approaches work better for different types of people?
3.What keeps people from learning? (Barriers - situational, institutional, dispositional.)
