Slide deck of the week: 8 reasons to focus on informal learning

Two years old but well worth your time. Charles Jennings looks at the eight reasons to focus on informal learning. They are:

  1. There are imperatives for informal learning
  2. Learning is a process, not a series of of events
  3. Most learning occurs outside of the classroom
  4. The vast majority of learning is social
  5. A lot of formal learning is ineffective
  6. People learn better when they are in charge
  7. There’s inherent inertia in formal approaches
  8. Informal and social learning are cost-effective
