What is this?

The Kolb Educator Role Profile (KERP) was created to help you clarify the role you prefer to take in helping others learn. This role includes your educational philosophy, your teaching style, the goals you set for learners, and the practices you use to promote learning. While the educator role is most often associated with teaching in the classroom or workshops, we also find ourselves taking it as a manager, consultant, parent or friend.

The KERP is based on a holistic typology of educator roles derived from Experiential Learning Theory (ELT). ELT draws on the work of prominent 20th century scholars who gave experience a central role in their theories of human learning and development—notably John Dewey, Kurt Lewin, Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, William James, Carl Jung, Paulo Freire, Carl Rogers and others. They developed a dynamic, holistic model of the process of learning from experience and a corresponding model of adult development.

How It Works

The KERP is a self-administered assessment that you complete online. The inventory takes 10-15 minutes to complete. Once you submit your answers, you will receive an email with your personal results.
