By: Knobull, Inc.
- Do you develop a time line and start tasks?
- Or do you think about who would prefer to do what and try to schedule around personal needs?
When the planning starts to fall behind schedule, what is your first reaction?
- Do you chase everyone to get back on track?
- Or do you ease off a bit recognizing that everyone is busy just completing tasks, let alone the extra tasks assigned? Your answers to these types of questions can reveal a great deal about your personal learning style."
Some students are very task-oriented. Others are very people-oriented. And others are a combination of the two. If a student emphasizes setting schedules, they tend to be more productivity-
• Neither preference is right or wrong, just as no one type of style is best for all situations. However, it is useful to understand natural learning tendencies so that a student can then work on developing skills that you might be missing.
• The combined focus on people and task completion is most effective. If a student pays high concern to both people and productivity, better learning results are achieved. The student is focuses on commitment to academic results.
• This style emphasizes making instructors and fellow students feel relevant, and involving them in determining education needs. And this will result in a better learning experience.
• Using the Grid model makes the various learning styles measurable and allows more than two competing options.
• Accurate measurement is important, because of the tendency by individuals to have blinders on.
• Using a model makes it easier to openly discuss behavior and improvement actions. Applying the Grid Survey results to assess learning style, greatly improves academic success.
Bentley concluded, "It is important that one style isn't always the most effective approach in every situation. While the benefits of participative learning are universally accepted, there are times that call for more attention in one area than another.
If the student is in the midst of a team project or some other significant change, it is often acceptable to place a higher emphasis on people than on production. Likewise, when faced with an rigid deadline, people concerns may be placed on the back burner, for the short-term at least, to achieve high productivity and efficiency.
We have alerted a large segment of the student population that we can provide them a free Grid assessment and feedback of their survey results if they contact us at our website. We continually stress that we believe in a better learning experience!"
