R commented on Personal Learning Coaches

Hi Kate, great idea. You’re right, there are many available options in terms of courses and resources and I think a professional personal learning coach would be helpful for individuals wishing to navigate that universe. I think a place to begin is to examine best practice from related roles such as academic advisors at colleges and executive coaches, to see what might be applicable for this market (individuals who won’t or can’t attend college but who wish to develop a learning objective). It will also be important to develop a business model / funding mechanism for this service as well as a plan to market it to the relevant audience.
