Abstract

Learning is often thought of as 'formal', 'informal' or 'non-formal'. This research report suggests that these are not discrete categories, and to think that they are is to misunderstand the nature of learning. It is more accurate to conceive 'formality' and 'informality' as attributes present in all circumstances of learning.
