Research on crossing the boundary between formal learning and 'other' learning (workplace, informal, etc.)

Background

Boundaries between informal and formal learning are equated to boundaries between education and the workplace : informal methods of learning are most often found in the work environment as a just-in-time answer to quick and frequent changes. Project-based and outcome-based learning, usually mediated by technology, are seen as techniques that a learner can take quick advantage of, using work-related resources. These methods are more student-driven and job-relevant than any formal options; they are also less time and money consuming than formal ones for which advanced learners have no time nor budget. Post-modern learners want to be considered mature enough to be responsible for their own learning, so that they can drive it in a meaningful, self-directed manner.
