Learning Styles and Spanish Community Service Learning

Click here to take a quick quiz to find out your learning style
by Ann Abbott

I took this online quiz about learning styles and scored highest on "Intrapersonal." As someone who has committed her work to Spanish community service learning, it's no surprise that reflection is one of the hallmarks of this learning style. Self-reflection is one of the hallmarks of the CSL pedagogy.

But are all the learning styles compatible with CSL? There are students who are very uncomfortable with ambiguity, messy problems, evolving timelines, and emerging issues. Those are the very characteristics of CSL and, for me, what makes it such a rich and vibrant learning experience.

What is your learning style? How does that mesh with teaching CSL? Handling the relationships with your community partners? Explaining your work to colleagues?
