Learning
This is a presentation on how the learning styles
described by Honey & Mumford link to Kolb’s
theory on learning....
What are the four
learning styles,
according to Honey
& Mumford?
Activist

Reflector

Theorist

Pragmatist

strong preference in one of
these styles, what are they
likely to ask or say?

  2. 2. Learning This is a presentation on how the learning styles described by Honey & Mumford link to Kolb’s theory on learning. Instructions: Try and answer the questions first, before moving to the next slide.
  3. 3. What are the four learning styles, according to Honey & Mumford?
  4. 4. Activist Reflector Theorist Pragmatist
  5. 5. Question: Somebody with a strong preference in one of these styles, what are they likely to ask or say? • Let me think about that… • Let’s do it! • Is there a general rule? • How can I use that? • • What model is that based on? What does that mean for me? • What happened? • What do we need to do? Activist Reflector Theorist Pragmatist
  6. 6. Activist Let’s do this! What do we need to do? Reflector Let me think about that… What happened? Theorist Pragmatist Is there a general rule? How can I use that? What model is that based on? What does it mean to me?
