Week 7 Assignment: Learning Styles and Effective Study Habits Describe the major characteristics of your preferred learning style? My preferred learning style is the naturalistic learning style. The major characteristics of this style are that I prefer to study outside or do so whenever possible, I relate information to the environment, choose to relate research projects or topics to nature and collect my own data. My learning style also tends to label my information and organize my studies to make them easily accessible. List at least three study strategies and techniques you have or will use during this course to increase your effectiveness? Three study strategies and techniques I will use during this course to increase my effectiveness. 1. Keep my notes and assignments in a binder and arranged with tabs and sub-tabs to be able to easily access any information in the future. 2. Find a place to study where I have room not a distraction so I can focus on my assignments. Possibly outside whenever possible. 3. Take breaks to keep my mind fresh. Go for a walk. Clear my mind so I can stay focused on my work and not become stagnant. What is the link between your learning style and effective study? I believe that the link between my learning style and effective study is that I being a naturalist need to be able to organize and label everything so I can know how to find things and easily. This comes in handy for effective study since I will always need to go back and reference my notes. Having them organized really helps and saves a lot of time on my assignments and when a quiz is taken.
