In the context of formal professional development activities, this study explores the link between employees' motivation to participate in formal learning activities (based on the self-determination theory), the nature of their goals (based on the goal orientation theory) and their learning preferences (based on the Felder Silverman model and the basic psychological needs). A mixed-method approach was used in which 805 employees from eleven organizations were questioned on their goals and motivation to participate. Hierarchical cluster analysis identified three motivational profiles: a qualitative motivational profile, motivational profile motivational profile. a moderate qualitative and a less qualitative Based on the resulting profiles, 23 employees were selected and interviewed to explore their learning preferences. Results show that there is a general tendency in learning preferences irrespective of the motivational profile. However, at some dimensions this is less pronounced for employees with a less qualitative motivational profile.
