Abstract

Continues from Part 1 and investigates how the learning styles and training methods for individuals and groups can be matched to maximise the efficiency of the training programme. In a similar manner to identifying personal learning styles, training methods can be classified by their efficiency with the different learning‐style groups. The training methods are divided into large and small group activities together with individual training processes. The learning styles of participants are then matched to the training styles.
