Sept. 26 — Learning Style Inventory

Facilitator: Tami Clark

Learning Styles play a major role in education and working environments. Studies performed all over the world with many different cultures indicate that Learning Styles are a principal ingredient of our achievement and success in school and at work.

The Learning Style Inventory is a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis of an individual's learning style. This instrument, a useful tool in analyzing the conditions under which students prefer to learn, assesses individual preferences in the following areas:

  • Immediate environment (sound, heat, light, and design)
  • Emotionality (motivation, responsibility, persistence, and structure)
  • Sociological needs (self-oriented, peer oriented, adult oriented, or combined ways)
  • Physical needs (perceptual preference(s), time of day, food intake, and mobility)

Join us as Tami imparts the LSI to us as adults! ALL those in attendance will receive a special offer to have this same inventory done for their children at a reduced rate.

*Registration is required for this class. The cost is $15.00 per person.
*Scholarships are available if there is a need.
