's preferred teaching style:
I believe that each of learn primarily in one of three ways: kinetically (through motion), visually or orally. Many of us learn through a combination of the three. The point is, none of us learn the same. Therefore, not all classes or instruction can be conducted the same way. Research shows that this is the most effective way to learn as when the brain is exposed to new knowledge, seven different ways, because it is believed that at least one of these ways will resonate with the learner. As a result, I attempt (when applicable) to present material in at least seven different formats.
