Leena I like the lifelong learning approach too. I think sometimes people misunderstand what IL is, probably not helped by the academic rhetoric surrounding IL. As I get older I am much more aware when I’ve come up against a gap in knowledge, and the ways I can gain IL in that area. That IL is ongoing and contextual probably needs to be emphasised more in discussions of it, so the lifelong learning aspect of it is apparent to people who probably are already engaged in lifelong learning without realising! (Or those who feel intimidated by the concept of IL). Anyway, great post!
