Presenting to Different Types of Learners


Whenever you are going to present to a group, you must consider who makes up the group and how best you can reach them. Sometimes you will present to a diverse group with different backgrounds and learning styles. When you present to a diverse group you must try to consider all learning styles. However, if you are presenting to a more homogeneous group of learners you may choose to present emphasizing one strategy over the others. The topic of your presentation may also lend itself to one style over others. Your main objective is to involve the audience and to teach them about your subject.
