学習する方

So I was on CosCom's website (I was struggling to find a question to ask in 5 seconds, so I looked around for something I probably won't get) and I found this little nifty...noun?

どうして「学習する方」に「方」を使います?「事」がいいね(「学習する事」)?
(Sorry for failed grammar, but I hope you understood my question)

方 has two main common readings: ほう and かた

ほう means 'way' or 'method.' かた has a completely different meaning; it is a polite word for 'person.'

「あなたが、日本語を学習する方ですか」
"Are you the person who will study Japanese? "

「マレー語の学習する方法」
" The method of learning Malay "

(学習すること is correct Japanese but it has a different meaning.)
