PART ONE
After completing the Honey and Mumford Learning Styles questionnaire (1992), my results were the following: 13 activist, 12 theorist, 10 pragmatist and my highest was on the reflector with a score of 16.
The learning styles show the understanding that we, as people, learn in a different way. In theory, one’s learning style indicates the preferred way in which we absorb, progress, understand and retain information. In addition, understanding one’s individual learning style will help choose the most effective learning activity. This does not mean that one cannot learn from activities that are not explicitly suited to their own style, but their preferred style will maximize their opportunity to learn.
Based on the work of Kolb (1984), learning styles were developed by Peter Honey and Alan Mumford (1992). They identified four distinct learning styles or preferences: Activist, Theorist; Pragmatist and Reflector. These are the learning approaches that individuals naturally favor. Honey and Mumford (1992) argue that in order to maximise one 's own personal learning, each learner ought to understand their learning style and seek out opportunities to learn using that style. To help individuals recognise their preferred learning style, Honey and Mumford (1992) developed a Learning Style Questionnaire. However, to be an effective learner you should also develop the ability to learn in other styles too. Therefore, it is good to choose activities outside your preferred style
