There are so many ways in which we could learn new information these days. So how do you know which learning method is the best for you? Your time is limited, so it’s important to get the most value out of the learning that you’re doing. In this blog post, I’ll explore 5 of the most popular options for learning, to increase your confidence. and see which one you’d choose.
Watching Ted talks is a great way to hear a variety of speakers on a wide range of subjects. It will help increase your general knowledge, but will not make you an expert in any one area. Great fun, but not specific enough maybe when you know what learning you want to do.
Search on the Internet
There is just loads of information on the internet and there is so much that you could learn. But with so much information, it can be difficult to know where to start or what to concentrate on. How do you know what type of learning to choose, this is still too open.
I do love reading books for personal development and I have a goal to read 12 this year. It is probably the most traditional way of learning. You can read books in your own time and at your own pace. But can you ensure you are retaining the information? I can’t believe I’m writing this, but the disadvantage of learning from books can be that there is no practice element. You might learn a lot of theory, but how do you translate that to practical tips you can add into your life.
The popularity of podcasts seems to be growing and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. You can search for the name and can find podcasts on the subject of confidence. Similar to books, you can learn in your own time, but are you taking it in?
You can find an online course specific to what you’re looking for. If it is in a group setting, you get the support and accountability of the other learners. You might also be lucky enough to have direct contact with the person leading the course and the opportunity to ask questions.
One of the best ways to learn to the focus on learning in more than one way. Listening to a podcast, for example is auditory. Instead learn in more than one way to increase your chance of remembering the information. One example might be to listen to the information but also to write in a workbook.
