As part of your preparation for learning you may want to consider how you learn best and what your preferred style and approach to learning might be.
Peter Honey and Alan Mumford are best known for their learning styles questionnaire. The questionnaire you can download is self-administered and determines people’s preferred learning styles. Knowing your own and your team members’ learning styles can accelerate learning. People undertake activities that best fit their preferred way of taking in and working with information. But there is also much to be gained from challenging yourself by trying out new styles.
