Formal, non-formal and informal learning: The case of literacy, essential skills and language learning in Canada (2010)

The author explores the differences and the links between formal, non-formal and informal learning. Formal learning is intentional, organized and structured and is often arranged by an institution. Non-formal learning may or may not be intentional and arranged by an institution but it is at least loosely organized. Informal learning is never organized and is thought of as spontaneous and related to experience.
