Abstract: People do not learn only in formal educational institutions, but also throughout their lives, from their experiences, conversations, observations of others, exploration of the Internet, meetings and conferences, and chance encounters etc. However this informal and non-formal learning can easily remain largely invisible, making it hard for peers and employers to recognise or act upon it. The TRAILER project aims to make this learning visible so that it can benefit both the individual and the organisation. The proposed demonstration will show a software solution that (i) helps the learners to capture a wide range of 'informal' learning taking place in their lives, and (ii) assists the organisation and the learner in recognising this learning (to the benefit of both). This software tool has recently been used in two phases of pilot studies, which have run in four different European countries.
