Case 1: Learners Without Borders (Les apprenants sans frontières) (2008)

Transgressing the Formal and Informal Learning Boundaries

In 2003, workers at the Winnipeg plant of Boeing Canada Technology asked for the opportunity to earn their high school diploma through courses offered in the workplace. Subsequently, the Boeing Mature Student Diploma program was developed. In this case study, the author explores the learning journey of workers participating in this program. Data collection was achieved through interviews and journal keeping of three workplace learners, two workplace instructor interviews, and by administering the Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory survey to an additional 16 workers, from which a random sampling of responses was used. The author has divided her discussion into the following categories:

(1) Initial Worker Decisions and Motivators
(2) Changes that Occurred During the Program
(3) A Springboard to Recent Informal Learning
(4) Looking Ahead Down the Learning Path.
