VARK Learning Styles Workshop Series

VARK_learning_main1

About the Series

Every student is unique in his/her style of learning. To teach a class with diverse learning styles, the choice of teaching strategy has direct influence on learning effectiveness. To help you cater for different learning styles of your own students, the Centre for Learning and Teaching has designed a series of training workshops. In this series, the concept of VARK learning styles would be introduced though mass lectures and workshops focusing on corresponding teaching strategies.

Aims and Objectives

The main aim of this series is to deepen the understanding on students’ learning styles, specifically the VARK learning styles launched by Neil D. Fleming in 1987, in which the acronym VARK refers to Visual (V), Aural/Auditory (A), Read/write (R) and Kinesthetic (K) sensory modalities. Teachers may want to know more about student learning preferences before designing teaching strategies to motivate and engage students in classroom activities as well as learning tasks assigned. In this series, guest speakers would share their experiences on different expertise related to students’ learning styles.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the series, participants would be able to:

  • recognise of the learning styles of students according to VARK learning style classification;
  • adopt appropriate teaching strategies to cater for students’ diverse learning styles;
