Index of Learning Styles Questionnaire

http://www.engr.ncsu.edu/learningstyles/ilsweb.html

 

This website is a very helpful site in assisting to determine individual learning styles. Once you complete the inventory you have automatic, printable results for your personal learning style. You will also have access to a listing of articles and resources. I recommend reading the article that describes the different learning styles and what works well and does not work so well with each style. Having this information as an individual as well as a group really helps to fine tune the best ways in which to present information. It can be a great tool for your congregation, students, family, community, etc. Enjoy!
