The Kolb Educator Role Profile describes four roles that effective educators use: Facilitator, Expert, Evaluator and Coach. Educators play these roles as they help learners maximize learning by moving through the four stages of the experiential learning cycle.

Most of us adopt all of these roles to some extent, however, tend to have preferences for certain roles. When you become aware of your preferences, you’re able to make deliberate choices about what works best for you and your learners in various contexts.
