Learning Techniques for Different Learners

18 Jun. 2013 Posted by Denis Greene in Stewardship

Church Development shares learning suggestions for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (touch-based) learners.

Recently I mentioned how people connect with stories. This is part of the reason why Jesus spoke in parables, and why we should do the same today. Some relate to stories more with visuals, others with sounds, and others still with touch.

In teaching stewardship to a variety of learners, the following methods can be helpful:  


  • Diagrams, charts
  • Color variety
  • Handouts
  • Case study (as individuals)


  • Lecture
  • Music
  • Case study (as small groups)
  • Role play (with talking)


  • Note-taking
  • Audience participation (with movement)
  • Role play (with movement)
  • Puzzles

Whichever ones you pick, choose a mix from all three to help educate the variety of learners in your church.
