|An efficient way to accomplish this
challenging task is to determine common
learning-difference profiles and match individualized
solutions to audiences differentiated by these
profiles. This is actually simpler than it
seems. Research helps us broadly describe four
learning orientation profiles. Below are descriptions for
mass customized learning environments that
fit each of the learning orientations:
Transforming Learners prefer loosely structured, flexible mentoring environments that promote challenging goals, discovery, strategies, problem solving, and self-managed learning.
Performing Learners prefer semi-structured environments that stimulate personal value and provide details, tasks, processes, and creative interaction (hands-on) not exploration and great effort.
Conforming Learners prefer simple, safe, low-learner control, structured environments that help learners achieve comfortable, low-risk learning goals in a linear fashion.
These descriptions support the broad variability in learning from a whole-person perspective, not simply in cognitive terms. They consider how emotions and intentions influence learning and thinking processes. These are powerful influences that guide how successfully individuals intend to learn. A closely matched learning environment will clearly have a positive impact on the accessibility, affordability, and quality challenges that now confront global education and training. There is business related research called Person Environment Fit (PEF). PEF is the degree to which a person or their personality is compatible with their environment.
