A lecture on Multiple Intelligences was conducted last February 8, 2018 at Room C-304 a2 11:30 am to 12:30 pm with Ms. Nelia A. Basmayor as the speaker.
This workshop is about understanding the concept of Multiple Intelligences as theorized by Dr. Howard Gardner, a professor in Harvard University. This theory states that each individual possesses different intelligences which vary according to its dominance. This theory does not accept the other psychologists who believed that each person has only general intelligence that could make them successful. Each individual has varied intelligences and it would be very helpful to let the student determine which of the multiple intelligences they belong and that this knowledge can be used in the adaption of an effective learning and studying strategy.
In this workshop, the speaker let the students take a short survey related to the multiple intelligences which was adapted from the work of Walter McKenzie 1999. This inventory gives the students an idea at least though not accurate, as to what intelligences they are dominant. The speaker then explained the features of each of these intelligences as well as the skills that the person possesses. Together with it are the possible careers that each of these intelligences can make them successful in the future.
The following multiple intelligences are:
The suggested strategies are then recommended for each multiple intelligences. Many students have been complaining that there is a problem on how they study because most often they will forget the information during examination. If these strategies are done positively and successfully, there is a chance that the student could improve their performances in the class and make good grades in the courses they are taking.
