Everyone learns in different ways. It’s important as a student that you know the learning style that works best for you to get the most out of your educational experience at the Allen School. We strive to teach in many different ways to accommodate every one so they can be successful in their new careers.
- Determine your style – You need to know how you learn best. Are you a reader or a listener? Do you learn better when someone explains the steps to you or do you learn by doing? Do you learn visually, by seeing something explained or demonstrated? Once you understand how you learn best you can start to look for ways to use that style to your advantage.
- Use your Style – If you are a visual learner this may mean taking notes during lectures. If you do better listening, you may want to ask your instructor if you can record lectures to listen to again later. If you learn better through explanation it may help to break down complex material into lists or flashcards. Your instructors will use many methods to teach you throughout your education so you will get a chance to see material delivered in several different methods.
- Explore New Styles – The great thing about a career in healthcare is that you will have new opportunities every day to learn new skillsets and grow in your profession. It is a good idea to develop different learning styles while you are in school to help you adapt out in the field. If you notice a classmate has a very different learning style from you be sure to ask them about it. You may find a great new way to make your learning even more rewarding.
No matter what your learning style is the Allen School works hard to make your time with us rewarding. We strive to see every student succeed in the workplace. Our instructors and support staff know what it takes to help you gain the skills you need to start a career in healthcare.
