Content strategy is the experience of learning, discovering, and eventually, doing (converting).
Below I’ll address the four main learning styles, followed by ways to reach each of them through content formats. Kolb’s learning styles, we can conceptualize how to format our content in order to address each one.
Remember, as educators we tend to educate from our own preferred style so it is helpful to cycle around each of these teaching styles to reach all learners in your class.
Learning spaces are shaped by the physical aspects of the space (in-person or virtual), cultural norms, institutional practices, social interactions and psychological expectations of the people in that space such that a person's position in the learning space defines their experience or 'reality' (Strange & Banning, 2001).
The LS preferences (according to Kolb) of the 49 physicians turned out as follows: 37% were Assimilating, 31% Converging, 27% Accommodating and 6% Diverging.
Although there are a multitude of learning style theories, I gravitate towards Kolb’s because it is simple and based on experience.
Whereas other theories take personality and sensory perception into account, Kolb incorporates experience (and interaction with a business by learning about products or services is an experience in itself).
This study was undertaken to investigate how different preferences of Learning Styles (LS) of psychiatrists might affect 49 psychiatrists (specialists and non-specialists) from 3 different clinics volunteered to participate in this study and to use the CDSS to diagnose a paper-based case (based on a real patient).
LS, attitudes to CDSS and complementary data were obtained via questionnaires and interviews.
