Informal Learning:  Opportunities and Challenges
Many organizations are increasingly recognizing that learning often extends far beyond traditional training or formal learning and are starting to take this recognition into account when designing and funding learning programs and activities. Training has more visibility than informal learning activities and also receives by far the largest share of learning budgets in most organizations. But growing numbers of organizations are now recognizing that informal or nonformal learning is a very important piece of the overall learning puzzle. This LoD Viewpoints examines informal learning in a little more depth than we have been able to do before.
