In 1985 Dugan Laird stated in his book ” Approaches to Training and Development ” that learning
occurs when the senses are stimulated.
He quoted research that found that 75% of an adult’s knowledge was obtained by seeing. 13%
was through hearing, the remaining 12% was learned through touch, smell and taste combined.
Based on this research, providing visual prompts for students will enhance their learning.
However, making your lessons a multi-sensual experience will enhance learning even further.
It’s worth considering this when planning your lessons.
