Learning in Context

“Our learning is grounded in prior experience. It is profoundly influenced by this experience as well as the context in which we operate. The decision to engage in a learning project is governed by a mix of demands and expectations, and by our own needs and desires, which stem from our own experience and what we believe to be possible in the situation in which we find ourselves.”

Learning can be informal and incidental, can be situated learning, through participation, experiential.
