Learning styles and learning theory. The term "learning style" refers to an individual's preferred method for approaching learning and gaining knowledge.
As a workplace educator, it is important to have some understanding of different learning styles in order to afford students a variety of ways to learn and acquire information.By considering a student"s learning style, you can make the most of your opportunities to share your knowledge and experience, and can adapt learning situations to best match the preferences or strengths of the student. Individuals have a range of strengths and preferences for how they receive and interpret information and usually no-one person has one exclusive style or preference. Research has explored the impact of individual learning styles recognising that people may vary in their response to learning opportunities and how they learn (Kolb, 1984; Honey & Mumford, 1992).

With regard to the role of the student, Ausubel favors reception learning over such student-centered approaches as discovery learning. For Ausubel, an ideal lesson would begin with an advance organizer that sets the stage for the knowledge to be subsumed. Bandura One of Bandura's contributions was to note that learning is a social phenomenon and that we learn through observation of others, not simply through direct experience.
Learning Theories. One of the key issues to look at when examining any Learning Theory is Transfer of Learning.
Indeed, this is such an important idea, that it is a field of research in its own right. Researchers and practitioners in this field work to understand how to increase transfer of learning -- how to teach for transfer. Introduction Constructivism. Learning Theories & Theorists.
