How Do You Learn?

Maryellen Weimer asks the question “How do you learn?”  She says “we are definitely way more interested in learning than we used to be. In the early years of my teaching and faculty development work, it was all about teaching: improve it and students will automatically learn more. Now the focus is on how students learn and the implications that has for how we teach.”  She goes on to say “I’m convinced that how we learn influences the decisions we make about how to teach.”

What do you think?  Do you think how we learn influences the decisions we make about how to teach? Do you agree or disagree with Weimer’s statement: “The wave of neuroscience research is making it clear that learners are unique, that understanding and sense-making is very much an individual process.”
