Learning styles

Everyone has his or her preferred learning style(s) and strategies. Recognising the ways in which you learn best can help you study more effectively and enable you to use techniques that help improve the way you organise and process information. Some people learn primarily by one of three different learning styles: visual, auditory and kinaesthetic, others have preferences for two or even all three of these styles. Discover your learning preferences below.

Tell us what you think...

...we want to hear from you

Tell us about your experience of using our new intranet pages. Did you find what you were looking for? Have you learnt something new today? Or do you wish we could improve your intranet experience?

Developing these intranet pages will be ongoing and, if you share your view and ideas, it will help us to continue to improve this important resource for the benefit of the entire University community.

We also welcome your comments on university internal communications in general. Email the team or pick up the phone 0121 414 6680. You can also tweet us. Whichever way you decide to get in touch we look forward to hearing what you have to say.

If you have a technical question you can contact our IT colleagues as they are much better at that stuff than we are!
