  4. 4. Emergent Learning Model Developed the Emergent Learning Model in response to EU i2020 integrating informal, non- formal and formal learning post-Bologna Process Traditional view is that these map to sectors, community/informal, college/non- formal, university/formal We re- defined informal as social, non-formal as resources &formal as accreditation
  5. 5. Testing Emergence We decided to test the Emergent Learning principle of learning as a flow from social organisation to accreditation with projects 1. Ambient Learning City – extra- institutional learning contexts 2. WikiQuals – extra-institutional self- determined learning
