Informal Learning

Facilitators: 
Sarah HaavindSarah Haavind and

Description: Courses and formal learning approaches certainly have their place. However, how close are we to recognizing and understanding the potential of informal learning? How do we create opportunities for informal learning? Is designing informal learning an oxymoron? During this 3-week seminar discussion we will tackle these and other questions in an effort to understand informal learning more deeply.
