The real science of “visual learning strategies” and “dual coding”.
Learn how to use them to supercharge your learning, with respected teaching and learning expert Oliver Caviglioli.
There’s no such thing as a “visual learner”.
The idea that some of us are “visual learners” and learn best through imagery is a myth, and has been widely debunked by psychologists.
(Take the quiz at https://examstudyexpert.com/brain-science-quiz/ to learn all about the “visual learner” myth, PLUS more myths about learning and the brain!).
But in many ways, we are ALL visual learners.
Because visuals, when used properly, can have a big benefit for our learning, not least through the powerful “dual coding” effect.
Highly respected teaching and learning expert Oliver Caviglioli joins me to explain all. He breaks down exactly how YOU can take advantage of the power of visuals in your own studies and use them to supercharge your learning.
