    Hi. It is interesting to compare the coaching role outlined in this video to my own experiences of working as a learning facilitator using negotiated learning approaches. There are similarities, but also significant differences.

    One difference in terms of emphasis at least is that a critical aspect of the role of a learning facilitator is to model behaviour through interactions, online or face-to-face. This is based in the belief that if, for example, we are hoping to develop an individual as a critically reflective then we need to show that in practice.

    Hi – can you point us to more information about the learning facilitator role you mention? Certainly it would be interesting to consider the comparisons further.
