A better understanding of learning style preferences can help us to avoid developing and delivering our educational programs from the perspective of our preferred learning style alone. A study of community development educators found most preferred to learn in a social context; take energy from the surrounding environment; gather information using the senses; make sense of this information using logic and objectivity; and orient themselves in an ordered, structured manner. Results have implications for planners of professional development activities, for administrators charged with forming and managing programming teams, and for Extension professionals motivated to better meet clientele needs.
