This book looks at informal learning in adult education, in the context of a global concept of learning (formal, non-formal, and informal), as lying on a continuum - this is, most learning situations are composed of both formal (planned) and informal (unplanned) elements. Informal learning, the larger but hidden part of learning, is universal (everyone learns informally during life's experience), ubiquitous, and continuous (not limited to specific locations and times). But, it is largely unconscious learning, resulting in tacit funds of knowledge and banks of skills that are used every day to negotiate our way through life. In particular, unconscious learning creates the basic assumptions which all student-learners bring to any new learning. (Series: Study Guides in Adult Education) [Subject: Adult Education]
