Welcome to the Rinella Learning Center's online course about Learning Styles! The goal of this mini-course is to help you better understand the concept of different learning styles – that is, the idea that different people have different preferences, capabilities, and strengths as learners – and apply that concept to your work as a student here at Miami University. This course includes two assessments in which you will discover your own learning styles. After taking these assessments, we will develop strategies to help you play to your strengths as a learner!
