How Do You Learn Best?

At the December Johns Hopkins Medicine Town Meeting where the focus was on the education priority of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Strategic Plan, Vice Dean for Education Roy Ziegelstein asked the audience to weigh in on how they learn best through an interactive poll.  Results showed that some work better independently, while others thrive in small working groups and teams. Some students prefer online classes, while others prefer lectures. How do you learn best? Share your answer in today’s Hopkins Happenings’ Cast Your Vote.

All channels cited above work for me. But I have a special preference for lectures due to the experience readily passed on by the lecturer.

Reading & Note taking, then repeated hands-on

As Lisa Schade said, reading is my best method for retaining information. I remember things that I read far more than I remember things that I hear.

Actually, I learn in a variety of ways (depending on what I'm learning). Some things are absorbed by reading, some things by watching someone else do it, and other things by doing them myself (sometimes with an instructor or printed instructions). It validates the "watch one, do one, teach one" method I've heard is practiced at Hopkins.

You forgot the "reading" option: I do my best learning when I can read a printed manual or similar tool.
