The AFR Learner Types – Learners of the Future – Thrive, Jive, Survive!

I wrote about the AFR Learner Types a few months ago and the article was received quite well within the learning community. I’m sharing it here because I believe that understand the three types and determining where our learners and we ourselves as learners fall, could be instrumental in our surviving, even jiving and thriving in the new post-pandemic world.

While you can download the Free PDF of the article “The AFR Learner Types – Learning in this Changing, Evolving World” here, here’s a quick synopsis.

My two-decades worth of experience with adult learners both in online courses and classroom programs taught me that based on their traits and corresponding learning behavior, learners can be classified into three groups.

  • The Agile Learner
  • The Flexible Learner
  • The Rigid Learner

While most of us (almost 80%) fall into the Flexible Learner category, some of us are Agile Learners and a smaller fraction comprises Rigid learners – and as you can see in the following image, I’ve seen Flexible Learners turn agile, but the rigid learners, due to their inherent dislike for change, often stay rooted to their learning beliefs. However, through counseling they can be motivated to move left toward becoming flexible learners.

At this juncture, it’s important to review our capabilities and determine how we can evolve into the learning professional of tomorrow – and if we feel tied down by our expectations, self-image, and/or current beliefs, it’s time to take a hard look at ourselves and weed out anything that stops us from learning, changing, and growing.

If you like my articles and would like to hear my thoughts, I invite you to my Learning Lights Podcast.

Dreams, Reality, and Life – A Pigeon’s Autobiography!

Pride blinds.
Envy enrages.
Failure destroys.
Humility softens.
Love heals.

A Pigeon’s Autobiography is the story of envy, pride, success, failure, and acceptance. It was inspired by a one-legged pigeon who danced awkwardly to find a mate and made me wonder if he really will. But he did, and when he did, I celebrated, because that dear one-legged pigeon taught me a lesson, which was that when maimed by failures we stop trying, it’s then that we die, and it could be years before we breathe our last.
