  PhD proposal: notes

Criteria to compare informal learning studies:

  • definitions of informal learning (which one, meaning)
  • research questions
  • data collection instruments
  • conclusions

Formal/informal learning integration scenarios:

  • levels
    • cognitive level
    • organisational level (interventions)
    • technology level (systems)
  • benefits
    • what are the benefits
    • measurement:
      • level (Kirkpartick like, at least activities-outcomes-business value)
      • instruments
      • or way of showing connection between activities and business results

I looked for an answer to my yesterday's question about using tacit learning term. As I expected: tacit learning is not a common term to use.

First I was happy to found something about tacit learning ASTD article and Peter Honey column, but became disappointed as they use it as almost a synonym to tacit knowledge (In any case I don't like learning to be used to define not a process, but outcomes, like "learnings"; probably this is due to my not-native English :)

To compare, I also looked for uses of informal and workplace learning:

This two are used more widely, but uses of informal learning could be confusing, and workplace learning could be perceived as a wider umbrella for learning at the workplace as contrast to the classroom (e.g. including e-training). 

Something to sort out :)))
