The Yin and Yang of Formal Informal Learning -
June 4, 2012
In the East, it is said that people who are yin are creative, passive, and easygoing. When they tend to lethargy, they are encouraged to become more yang. On the other hand, those who are yang are seen as active, precise, and controlled. They are nudged to strive toward yin. It is acceptable to never find balance between yin and yang, but instead to always seek, reflect, and add elements of the other. In the West, people say yin and yang but often mean yin versus yang, good versus evil. We think there is some of that going on with formal and informal learning. People get heated, choose sides, affiliate with one way or the other, and even debate the better form. If informal learning is the goal, do you know if it is appropriate for your organization and outcomes? Are your programs deliberately designed, resulting in selected informal and formal strategies? -
