The Informal Learning Network at Michigan State University brings together faculty members, academic specialists, staff members, and students whose teaching, research, and outreach interests include informal education. Informal learning (also called free-choice or out of school learning) is learning that takes place outside of classrooms and prescribed pedagogies. Informal learning can happen in any discipline and in many different kinds of settings.
