14 Ways To Engage The Auditory Learner in Your Courses


One of the major things we need to consider when it comes to designing our online or offline training course, is whether we have designed our program for the four main types of learners:

  • visual learners
  • audio learners
  • kinaesthetic learners
  • reading and writing learners


In this post, we will look at optimising our courses for the auditory learner.


Audio learners simply learn better by listening.   This doesn’t mean that they don’t learn in any of the other modes; it just means audio is their strongest and most natural form of acquiring new information.

Quite simply, anything that allows your learners to hear new information will help the auditory learner.

Below are some suggestions of various components you can include in your training courses to ensure that your training is engaging for the auditory learner:


  1. Pay attention to the volume, pitch, tone, diction, and variation of your voice
  2. Ensure that they don’t have to sit silently for extended periods of time
  3. Create an MP3 or other audio version of your training for them to listen to
  4. Don’t have too much reading content in your course
  5. Tell stories
  6. Make things rhyme, melodious or have memorable tunes or songs
  7. Verbally explain what you are doing when you are demonstrating tasks
  8. Encourage group discussions and conversations between the students
  9. Provide opportunities for verbal communication such as question and answer forums telephone calls, or live interactive webinars


Auditory learners don’t just learn by listening to you speaking, they also learn by listening to themselves speaking.   

Therefore including any activities in your training course that encourages the learners to do any of the following will also considerably support the auditory learner:


  1. Speak aloud to themselves
  2. Record audio of themselves
  3. Teach and explain things to others 
  4. Produce and submit videos or audios as part of their assessment
  5. Recite or repeat the learning


This is by no means an exhaustive list of ways that you can enhance training for your auditory learners; but including at least one or two elements from the list above will help you create engaging training programs for all of your auditory participants.


What can you do to make your training more engaging for auditory learners?

Are there any items that we’ve missed from our list?
If you would like any help or guidance on making your training more engaging for all of the different learning types, modes and preferences, do not hesitate to get in touch to book a consultation.
