VARK Questionnaire: Visual And Kiesthetic Learning

According to the VARK questionnaire (n.d.), how I learn best is by doing visual and kinesthetic learning. Before taking this questionnaire I knew I was more of a hands on and visual learner. I am not the kind of student that can read something and just remember it, I have to either see it in a graph or do it myself to remember it. Some examples of visual ways of learning are pictures and graphs (“The VARK Questionnaire,” n.d.). Cases and trails are examples of kinesthetic learning (“The VARK Questionnaire,” n.d.). According to the questionnaire being a visual learner I should, “draw things [and] use diagrams” (“The VARK Questionnaire,” n.d.).

I will have to be in more specific situation that I am not comfortable with so I am able to know what the doctor will do. It will be helpful for me to learn this new information if it is presented in graphs or if I can do it hands-on. According to the VARK questionnaire, that is how I learn best (“The VARK Questionnaire,” n.d.). However when it comes to online classes I am an advanced beginner. I am not at the novice level because I have done some online things with my bachelor degree program, however, this is the first full class that is online. An advanced beginner is someone that, “coped with enough real situations to note… the recurrent meaningful situational components” (Benner, 1982, p. 403). I am hoping by the end of this class I will have moved up to the competent
