Here is a great infographic about the different learning styles and how all of our students learn in a different way. This in my opinion should be at the center of our teaching style strategies. One of the many things I do before sitting down with faculty (my students) is to figure out which is the best way for me to transmit knowledge to them in a way that fits their learning style. I spend time getting to know the person as an individual in order to figure out what makes them tick. This approach has worked for me many times before, and it could work for you as well.
