Informal Learning and the Older Professional Worker: Learning Practices, Challenges and Supports (2010)

This document outlines a study designed to examine the informal learning practices of older professional workers, defined as those aged 50 and older.

Using interviews and a questionnaire, researchers focused specifically on Certified Management Accountants (CMAs), who are required to update their education continually, and who increasingly tend to work past the age of 65.

Learning on the edge: Connecting people and l(e)arning in the everyday to policy and practice possibilities (2006)

In this paper, the author explores how self-employed contractors and consultants can and do participate in informal learning.

Specifically, the author focuses on whether these workers use web-based technology to tap into online communities with similar interests. Such communities may be particularly valuable for self-employed workers, who often find formal training neither accessible nor feasible.
