As part of Learning at Work Week, Pearson TalentLens are pleased to offer you and up to 20 colleagues the chance to try the freshly updated Learning Style Questionnaire.

The Learning Style Questionnaire (LSQ) has been used extensively within industry and academia for over 30 years, to measure learning preferences in people aged 16+.Developed by Peter Honey and Alan Mumford and based upon David Kolb’s Learning Cycle, the purpose of the LSQ model is to help stimulate individuals to think about the way they learn from their experiences.

How does it work?
The survey contains 40 statements, which relate to behaviours representing each of the four different styles of learning: Activists, Reflectors,Theorists and Pragmatists. Each statement you agree with counts as one point to the related learning style. The more statements you agree with relating to each style, the higher your preference for that type of learning will be. Your results are available immediately upon completion.

For more details and to access the questionnaires for your organisation go to Pearson TalentLens' National Partner Page.
