About the Series
Learning is a continuous and cumulative process driven by individual needs and interests. It happens in a variety of settings, including not just the formal classroom, but museums, libraries, zoos, nature centers, digital learning environments, and media. Recognizing that the average American will spend 95% of their time outside of the classroom, this lecture series focuses on the science of non-formal teaching and learning and the important roles of non-formal learning in the lives of individuals and communities.
