For a speaker, it’s important to take various learning styles into consideration when designing your presentation. Here are some things to consider for each of these styles:

  1. Active learners learn by doing. Incorporate problem-solving or hands-on activities, especially in groups.
  2. Reflective learners think things through first. Offer them handouts to reference later and writing pads so that they can take their own notes.
  3. Sensing learners want to know how the information connects to the world. Give them concrete examples of how they can apply your information.
  4. Intuitive learners enjoy the abstract and would do well learning about theories related to your topic.
  5. Visual learners thrive on visuals and remember what they see. Offer a variety of props, images and charts.
  6. Verbal learners remember what they hear. Use concise, effective phrases alongside your visuals.
