The Importance of Informal Learning

LearnDash

Often there is more learning done in an informal manner. The trouble with informal learning is that it can be difficult to measure – if at all. However, it is also possible for informal learning to have a more significant impact on organizational performance. Often informal learning is self-initiated. The learner is motivated to find the answer to “something” and they go about a variety of ways to learn the information.

Who do people most often turn to for information?

Where is L&D heading?

E-Learning Provocateur

I prefer to see MOOCs through the lens of informal learning which values the learning over its bureaucracy. As for big data, there is clearly a lot of potential in using it to inform our practice – if we can access it. Informal first.

Yet we know in the workplace the vast majority of learning is informal. We sometimes see this in formal settings (which is why universities enforce a minimum percentage of lecture attendance), but it appears most starkly in informal settings where the learner is empowered to do it or not.
