  • Visual (V): This preference includes the depiction of information in charts, graphs, flow charts, and all the symbolic arrows, circles, hierarchies and other devices that instructors use to represent what could have been presented in words. Aural (A): This perceptual mode describes a preference for information that is "heard." People with this modality report that they learn best from lectures, tutorials, tapes, and talking to other colleagues. Read/write (R): This preference is for information displayed as words. Kinesthetic (K): By definition, this modality refers to the "perceptual preference related to the use of experience and practice (simulated or real)." Although such an experience may invoke other modalities, the key is that the student is connected to reality, "either through experience, example, practice or simulation"

    16. 16. Activists • The here and now • Just do it • Jump in at the deep end • Have a go • Act without thinking it through • Don’t like preparation • Get bored easily
    17. 17. Reflectors • Take time to think it through • Consider all angles and implications • Listen to others • Uncomfortable in unplanned situations • Need information to work on • Dislike deadlines
    18. 18. Theorists • Logical • Rational • Analytical • Objective • Perfectionist • Restricted lateral thinking • Don’t like uncertainty • Don’t like subjectivity
    19. 19. Pragmatists • Does it work in practice? • Like linking the theory to the problem • Like to tackle it straight away • Enjoy coaching and feedback • Don’t like open ended discussions • Need clear guidelines • Need immediate reward
