VARK is a questionnaire that helps your learning by suggesting the strategies you should be using.
People with a strong visual preference for learning like:
different formats, space, graphs, charts, diagrams, maps and plans.
People with a strong aural preference for learning like:
discussions, stories, guest speakers, chat.
People with a strong read/write preference for learning like:
lists, notes and text in all its formats and whether in print or online.
People with a strong kinesthetic preference for learning like:
senses, practical exercises, examples, cases, trial and error.
How Do I Teach? As well as being a new questionnaire there is also a new VARK Profile for Teachers. Try it and see if your preferences for learning match your preferences for teaching.
WHY IS MY REQUEST TO USE VARK DECLINED? We are declining the use of VARK for requests involving large numbers of participants. VARK was primarily designed to help teachers, trainers and students. Research requiring large numbers is a secondary function and where it does not offer help to students we decline its use. Using VARK online with large numbers adds to our costs without any benefit. We are not a charity. Using VARK on paper usually means that learners receive only their four VARK scores without any helpful description of their preferences and the strategies they could use.
