Description

“Midway between the more familiar concepts of formal and informal learning lies non-formal learning; the notion that learning is somewhat organized and may occur at the initiative of the individual but also happen as a by-product of more organized activities.”

This interactive session situates non-formal learning within a digital context to explore possibilities for using web-based tools and social media to tailor online environments for supporting our personal learning, professional growth, and the way we organize educational practice. (Grades: Prof Dev.)

Anita Zijdemans Boudreau is a Professor of Education at Pacific University with a background in human development, education, and applied cognitive science. Her primary interest is in learning and technology and how they are integrated into practice. To that end, her research and practical pursuits include: professional and teacher development; constructing personalized virtual learning environments to support knowledge development and learning communities in informal/formal contexts; as well as exploring educational applications of immersive 3D virtual worlds, such as Second Life.
