Students attend the learning styles workshop. The event was held Thursday, Sept. 17 at 11 a.m. to noon.

Community Outreach Director of CASA Youth Shelter Pamela Sepulveda hosted a workshop sponsored by the Re-Entry Program at Cerritos College.

The event was held on Thursday, Sept. 17 from 11 a.m to noon in room BE 109.

Re-Entry Resource Specialist Shannon Estrada held the same event a year ago and enjoyed Sepulveda’s performance so much she invited her to host this one.

Estrada said, “The reason I host these workshops is to help students be successful in their educational journey and if we can offer some tips and strategies to help do that then that makes me happy.”

Psychology major Dalia Thomas found this workshop to be informative.

Psychology major Lucy Conde said, “I heard about this event from my professors and I feel this workshop can prepare [students] for the future.”

Accounting major Angelo Cumampao found out about the event from a poster he saw on campus.

He said, “This workshop can help anyone regardless if you are not in struggling in class, it helps you become a better learner.”

Cumampao said Sepulveda did a great job helping him understand with scenarios and gestures.

During the workshop students were asked to answer a questionnaire sheet and from there they discovered which learning style is their dominant style.

The following are the three learning styles and examples of how they are effective:

  • Visual- usage of diagrams, color coded words, highlighters, circled and underlined words.
  • Auditory- usage of word association, spoken direction, repeat facts with eyes closed, group discussion, audio tapes for language practice, typing notes.
  • Kinesthetic/Tactile – taking lab classes, field trips, visiting museums, memory games.

Sepulveda said students will maximize their college experience if they discover what their dominant learning style is.

She added that by knowing the learning style it will have a student succeed in midterms and final exams.

Sepulveda will return to host a workshop about intimate partner violence.

The workshop will be Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 11 a.m., however, the room is to be determined.
