Learning Style Changes And Their Relationship To Critical Thinking Skills
In the first phase, carried out in spring 2005, Kolb's Learning Style Inventory (LSI v.3) was the basis of the administered questionnaire and in the second phase, carried our in winter 2005-06, the LSI v.3 and the California Critical Thinking Skills Test (CCTST) were the basis of the administered questionnaire.
Results show that the prevailing learning style types are the "assimilating" and the "converging" ones.
This study reports on the results of a research on learning styles and critical thinking skills of sixty eight postgraduate students of Master's Level Business Education Programs.
These students have participated in both phases of our research.
To enhance your questioning when problem-solving (and thereby improve your critical thinking abilities), make sure you break questions down.
Suppose you encounter a new problem, in work or life, and aren’t sure what to do.
Start by asking the following: These types of questions encourage you to get right to the heart of a problem, interrogating it for simple solutions before assuming complexity.
In addition to using these techniques, remember that any kind of new learning is equally helpful for critical thinking.
Every time you read about something new, join a class or tackle a challenging book, you’re becoming a sharper, smarter thinker.
