Special Announcement- Network Affiliations

As you know, here at ILI we spend a lot of time thinking (and talking about) learning.

How to broaden access and participation, what supports effective learning and who gets to be considered an expert? It’s all a part of our ongoing quest to change the narrow ways in which people think about learning. Most people think about learning in classroom settings – when in fact, we’re learning every day, everywhere. Having moved from apprenticeship, through an industrial model of learning, today we find ourselves in the learner- led era, where people choose what where and when they learn.

That’s why we’ve opened the door to welcome in a coalition of others who are similarly dedicated to changing the landscape of learning. Other organizations like Portal to the Public (helping experts connect with general audiences), FLAME (providing professional development for education leaders),  and the Science Communication Trainers Network ( a community of practice for SciComm researchers, trainers, and practitioners)  are now affiliated with ILI , extending our reach and strengthening our impact.

Watch this space for a series introducing our new affiliated organizations and our projects as we work together to build inclusion and access.
