Using Learning Profiles to Explore the Dynamics of Learning                                                                    

Monday, March 26, from 3-4:00 CST

Mastering the dynamics of learning is an increasingly important skill for students in light of the significant increase in the amount of information that they are required to process. 

And while students learn in many different ways, they may not be aware of their own unique learning preferences or how to become adept at all facets of learning. This webinar will outline some of these key differences while demonstrating how students and instructors can raise awareness of these learning dynamics and adapt methods to better address the principles of high quality learning.

This webinar will also show how to use learning profiles to increase student understanding of not only how they learn but how they can become more mindful of the process they go through when learning.

Key Topics Include: 
•  Four different orientations towards learning and how they are best developed
•  Using the 4MAT Learning Cycle to increase knowledge transfer and retention
•  Strategies for helping people stretch to develop a full range of learning skills
•  Designing instruction to encourage multiple forms of learning and not just single-sided approaches
