An Introduction to Strategies and Styles of Learning
It seems appropriate to begin a book entitled Learning Strategies and Learning Styles with definitions of the terms style, strategy, and most basically, learning. Clarification of the meanings of these and other terms and important distinctions drawn between them will prepare the way for the remainder of the text. Learning can be described from various perspectives. I discuss three: the experiential, the behavioral, and the neurological.
