Knowing and Understanding More About Teaching and Learning as an Activity
In this article, the author is talking about non-formal education. The goals, content, methods of teaching, ways of achievement measuring, and all the other aspects of non-formal education can differ widely. Also, teachers working in non-formal education can be very different from each other from many aspects, e.g., the training they got before starting any type of non-formal teaching. They can also be different if they had or still have any experience in mainstream education ("schooling"). We should pay much more attention to non-formal education than we did typically, i.e., without thinking that non-formal education would be better than formal education or the opposite. They are different, but based on the same roots. There are dozens of crucial issues such as What kinds of knowledge can be constructed in non-formal education?

Exploring the Impact of Prior Experiences in Non-Formal Education on My Pedagogy of Teacher Education
The purpose of this article is to use self-study methodology to uncover what effects these experiences had on the development of the author's pedagogy of teacher education and so he needed to find a way to extract ideas that were relevant to his practice as a teacher educator. The author draws two conclusions from this self-study (1) There is considerable value in re-experiencing oneself as a learner by examining one’s own life history in order to challenge how we know what we know about teaching. (2) If we accept the idea that prior experiences as a student and as a teacher influence our work as teacher educators and professors of education, then our prior experiences as a learner in non-formal settings offer a rich context for additional analysis through self-study.
