Title: The development of informal educational processes – putting the findings into context where work is organised in flat hierarchies due to increasing democratisation and flexibility in the workplace
How do educational processes in informal learning environments develop at an adult age? What effects do these have on the development, or deployment, of strategies in fulfilling (everyday) requirements? And to what extent can informal educational processes shed light on the question of how autonomous, self-motivated learning and behaviour are developed? An increasing requirement for individual “self-organisation” is mirrored in the changing skills requirements in the workplace. In this context, the study aims to provide insight into whether an increasing flexibilisation of professional qualifications can be identified and, if possible, offer recommendations for the future organisation of professional qualifications that take into account flexible learning and working structures and non-linear careers.
The continuing change in the function of education throughout one’s lifetime continues to require self-adjustment appropriate to the function and situation of the learning procedures through the provision of appropriate training and advice. Thus, it is important to include learning arrangements other than conventional, standardised teaching-learning arrangements in subsequent studies.
