Learning experiences in terms of verbalizer-visualizer cognitive style: Interviewing verbal and visual learners
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to investigate learning experiences regarding visualizer-verbalizer cognitive style. Six Taiwanese adults were surveyed by means of the Santa Barbara Learning Style Questionnaire (SBLSQ), and then interviewed regarding their learning experiences in terms of visualizer-verbalizer cognitive style. Results shows that the more positive scores an individual obtained from the SBLSQ, the more visual learner s/he is; likewise, the more negative scores an individual got, the more verbal learner s/he is. Results also indicate that the learning performances were related to the (mis) match of visualizer-verbalizer cognitive style of learners and teachers. The evidence for this concept is examined and suggestions are made for further research and theoretical development.
