Abstract:

In this chapter we give an overview of what Whole Brain® learning is, and discuss in depth the Whole Brain® Model of Herrmann (1995) as a tool to understand the diverse thinking preferences that individuals have. We highlight what a single dominant HBDI® profile looks like in each of the quadrants.Acknowledging that we have a diverse representation of thinking preferences in our classrooms, we emphasise that learning opportunities should be designed in such a way that they factor in the uniqueness of the individual student – this creates a challenge to all lecturers.
