Example Citation:
Ted Sanders, co-chairman of the National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board who helped draft the report, said: 'We need to understand how to develop just-in-time learning strategies that last a lifetime, so that learning opportunities can be structured and delivered exactly when the individual needs them — whether a young child in school or an adult in the workplace.'

Earliest Citation:
The new flexible space created in the curriculum by the 20% rollback in technical requirements would be used in very different ways by different engineering schools. Following their tradition of diversity, some might focus on advanced specialized technical training; ... some might experiment with radical departures from conventional curricula such as "just in time learning."
— M. Granger Morgan, "Accreditation and diversity in engineering education," Science, August 31, 1990
