There are two forms of Independent Learning:
- Formal learning is where you have booked onto and taken part in a structured learning activity with clearly defined learning outcomes. These will be interactive and participation based. This is normally delivered face-to-face, or can be an online learning management system (LMS) with a formal learning assessment/knowledge check and certificate.
- Informal learning is where you have engaged in more unstructured learning, often self-directed and within your own time. This is through watching, reading or listening to content and non-participatory. Webinars are considered informal learning by the LTA.
