Discipline summary

Education is future oriented and concerned with human development and intellectual growth. It refers to any experience that involves a learning process which affects the mind, character or physical ability of an individual. Such learning processes can involve formal learning, self-taught learning, or training. Formal education is conducted at an institution where teachers generate and facilitate learning spaces. Self-taught learning is often termed life experience and refers to accumulated skills based on individual motivations and experimentation. Training refers to experiences directly tied to highly specific outcome skills. At large, education is driven by societal values and represents a system by which to transmit cumulative knowledge, skills and values across generations in order to stimulate thinking, promote basic life skills, and encourage advanced skill development.
