What do you know about learning styles, and what would you like to know?
I'm going to have the pleasure of attending the upcoming Community U conference this Friday and Saturday at Parkway Apostolic Church in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. This will be one of a series of conferences put on by Saddleback Church this year, and you can click here to learn more about them.
What I'm most excited about, however, is that I get a chance to lead one of the conference breakout sessions this year! I've been wanting to do this for a while, and I'm super excited to have the opportunity.
But I need your help. Yes, yours. I am going to be leading a discussion on the topic of Learning Styles, and I'd like to get some opinions from our SmallGroups.com readers to help me polish up the session. Specifically, I'd like to know two things:
1. What do you already know/believe concerning the application of learning styles in a small-group environment? Are you familiar with the different learning styles present within your group members? Have you found it easy or difficult to adapt learning experiences to connect with different learning styles? Do you think worrying about learning styles within a small group is completely unnecessary? Things like that.
2. What do you wish you knew about learning styles? What are some areas that are unclear to you? Are there any questions that you would really like answered pertaining to learning styles? Or have you come across specific situations where you could use some practical tips and/or advice?
Any help you can give me with be...well, helpful. So thanks in advance!
And by the way: I believe the registration period for the Parkside conference has expired. But if you're in the Milwaukee area and want to stop by, you might want to contact Saddleback and ask really, really nicely if they'll let you sign up.
