Abstract

This entry addresses the role of people’s interest in out-of-school learning contexts (including everyday experiences and hobbies) and participation in designed settings (e.g., museum exhibits) or programs (e.g., 4-H groups), although interest can be triggered and supported to develop both in school and out of school. It provides information about the definition of interest, the development of interest, and indicators for measuring interest and its change over time.
