Welcome to the American Learnership™ Forum (ALF)

"The mind once expanded to the dimensions of larger ideas, never returns to its original size."
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

What is Learnership?

Learning is a complex process with the object of knowledge creation and use in virtually all human affairs. And, learners are people with an ability to learn – although the development of this ability and willingness to use knowledge varies widely across the general population. It follows, then, that there should be a term to describe people who are exceptional and influential learners – and to recognize their capabilities and influence on others.

Learnership is the suggested term, and it is derived from: (1) learner – one who seeks to learn or to gain knowledge through experience or study, and
(2) – ship (suffix) – to show or possess a quality, state, or condition. Additionally, Learnership captures the essence and skill of leadership in which people are skillful in influencing others thinking and action.

The American Learnership Forum (ALF) is a subsidiary of American Learnership Solutions (ALS), and a community of interest (COI) for lifelong learners and integrative thinkers seeking to communicate on personal, organizational, community, and societal concerns. This community welcomes skilled writers, coaches, educators, consultants, leaders, artists and other informed people striving to evolve to a "Mindful Way-of-Being." We celebrate America’s traditions and responsibilities at this time in world history, and we solicit your insights, accomplishments, and artistry for reflection, dialogue, and notable publication.
