When it comes to education, everyone learns exactly the same way, right? Not quite.

Understanding and adapting to the different learning styles is crucial for anyone involved in any form of instruction, whether that’s teaching in a classroom, in the workplace or even in the virtual world. In this article, Brianna Hansen of Cornerstone University considers the implications.
