Learning Styles and Corporate Training

Learning Styles and Corporate Training This study attempts to verify if occupational groups demonstrate distinct learning styles and learning context preferences, and to assess the implication of any systematic differences for corporate training. Subjects were 140 members of seven occupational groups from a support component of a Fortune 500 firm. Data on learning styles were gathered using the Gregorc Style Delineator (GSD) and the Productivity Environmental Preference Survey (PEPS). It was posited that learning style and productivity preference would vary by occupation, and that a measure of association would exist between learning style and productivity preference within occupations. Two of three hypotheses formulated for the study were supported by the data. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Business Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This study attempts to verify if occupational groups demonstrate distinct learning styles and learning context preferences, and to assess the implication of any systematic differences for corporate training. Subjects were 140 members of seven occupational groups from a support component of a Fortune 500 firm. Data on learning styles were gathered using the Gregorc Style Delineator (GSD) and the Productivity Environmental Preference Survey (PEPS). It was posited that learning style and productivity preference would vary by occupation, and that a measure of association would exist between learning style and productivity preference within occupations. Two of three hypotheses formulated for the study were supported by the data.
