Elliott Masie on Informal Learning

April 7, 2008 Sarah Danzl

In this podcast, Elliott Masie, founder of the Masie Center and leader of the Learning Consortium, discusses informal learning, a topic that is generating lots of buzz in the industry today.

Elliott defines informal learning as a more accessible form of learning that is not structured by the organization, but rather originates with the learner and therefore includes less tracking and formality. Elliott shares with the listening audience some innovative projects leading companies are working on in the area of informal learning, some pitfalls companies have encountered along the way, and provides meaningful ways to measure the impact of informal learning. Finally, he gives us his personal views on what organizations can do to best support an informal learning environment.
