Reflections on Dr. John Krumboltz

This week, we heard the sad news of a well-beloved theorist and colleague, Dr. John Krumboltz. I had the pleasure of interviewing him on the phone many years ago. The quality wasn’t the greatest, but as an instructor, I was so thrilled to have John Krumboltz share his theory but also his personality with me, and in turn, my students, and I’m equally as honored to share his thoughts and his voice with our followers.

Here’s a little tidbit on his thoughts about the contribution of Happenstance Theory to the field. In this bite, he talks about the role of mistakes in learning. Finally, I’ll end with his thoughts about what excites his curiosity.

Always an encourager, always willing to take celebrity pictures with students and faculty fans, alike, and always giving of himself. So blessed to have known him. We’d love to hear your stories as well.
