On 15-19 August EPALE is having a special focus on informal and non-formal learning. Although they are different, non-formal and informal learning are often conflated to refer to the process of acquiring skills, knowledge and competencies outside a traditional learning environment. Formal education systems are sometimes unable to effectively meet the individual needs of adult learners, which is why non-formal and informal learning are invaluable ways of addressing these needs.
We’re on the lookout for articles, opinion blogs, resources and case studies about:
Hints and tips for providing non-formal and informal education to adults
Recognition and validation of non-formal and informal learning in your country
Experiences in providing non-formal and informal education
If you have a blog post, news story, event, video or case study relating to non-formal and informal learning, you can submit this for publication by sending it over to us at email@example.com. By posting a content item, you’ll be sharing it with EPALE’s 15,000 registered users across Europe.
