Learning Styles

Before trying to alter or improve the way you study and learn, it is useful to understand how you go about your learning.  This section includes tools for assessing your learning style, your approach to studying and your expectations around studying.
Approaches to Learning

Extensive research in student learning in higher education reveals that students approach their studying and learning in two basic ways:

    Surface Approach
        Characterised by an intention to reproduce parts of the content
        Passive dependence, accepting ideas and information without assessing them
        Focus on rote learning and assessment requirements
        No reflection on the purpose or strategies for learning
        Memorising facts and procedures routinely; no recognition of guiding principles or patterns
    A Deep Approach
        Characterised by an intention to understand
        Actively engage with material to make it meaningful
        Relating ideas to previous knowledge and experience; using organising ideas to integrate ideas
        Critically assess information

How do I learn Best?

Individuals tend to have a preferred learning style, or way in which they like to work with information and ideas.  For example, some students like information to be presentede in a visual fashion whicle others prefer to hear it.  The Vark Inventory will give you an indication of your preferred learning style with suggestions for enhancing the way you work with content.
