One of a series of workplace education modules, this document presents the Mind Fitness module, designed to help determine students' learning styles and create successful learners in the workplace. An introduction describes the framework of the module, indicating that it utilizes four types of exercises to work with feeling-directed, intellect-directed, body-directed, and intuition-directed learning styles, respectively. The first section, a learning check-up designed for feeling-directed learners, presents information on why learning is important with exercises that allow students to share past learning experiences. The second section presents warm-up exercises designed for intellect-directed learners and includes activities related to determining students' learning style, identifying with specific learning styles, and solving time management issues. The third section is focused on "doers," or body-directed learners, and includes activities related to understanding how different learners approach problems, understanding how learning styles affect communication, and observing different learning styles in decision-making. The fourth section, geared toward intuitive learners, provides activities related to stimulating creative thinking, understanding listening techniques, becoming aware of learning potential, and practicing prioritizing goals. The final section provides instructors with additional activities for developing Mind Fitness classes. Contains 17 references. (AJL)
