Learning Styles

Adapt your presentation to your audience’s visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning style predispositions. Incorporate simple pictures and graphs to connect with visual learners, tell stories and anecdotes to appeal to auditory learners, and include some physical activities–role-playing, handling a prototype or creating models–for the kinesthetic learners.

So what?

Research shows that 30 – 40% of people are visual learners, 20 – 30% are auditory learners and 30 – 50% are kinesthetic learners. Adapting your presentation to different learning styles will help capture your audience’s attention, ensure that they will remember your ideas and persuade them to respond to your message.
