What is education?

Education involves a wide range of activities. The core processes of formal education:

  • administration , dealing with recruitment, admissions, retention, progression, graduation, timetabling, reporting, and so on;
  • teaching , including mentoring and all non-instructivist activities around the deliberate nurturing of knowledge;
  • learning , which may be the only necessary activity here;
  • assessment , summative, formative and diagnostic;
  • accreditation , saying and recognizing who learnt what.
