Fostering sustainable learning ecosystems by incorporating non-formal, informal learning: Opinion


In a recent editorial for University World News Patrick Blessinger and Madasu Bhaskara Rao discuss the role of postsecondary institutions in fostering sustainable, symbiotic learning ecosystems. Blessinger and Bhaskara argue that the global knowledge society is becoming increasingly interconnected and is transforming into a global learning society where formal, non-formal, and informal learning will likely become increasingly interconnected. The authors write that postsecondary institutions– which already promote formal learning–should integrate non-formal and informal learning into the educational experience to provide students with a more integrated experience.
