    What is informal learning: is it the accidental learning that occurs when doing something else? The purposeful learning that occurs when researching ways to solve an immediate problem? A bit of both?  Something else? This session first clarifies informal learning, presents a framework for considering its pragmatic uses during the lifespan of a job, and suggests the role of learning and development groups in facilitating informal learning.

    After completing this session, you will be able to:

    • Describe your role as a learning and development professional in facilitating informal learning
    • Distinguish formal from informal learning.
    • Explain the role of informal learning at different phases of a worker’s tenure in a job
