The conference aspires to contribute to practitioners understanding of pedagogic tools that transcend the traditional modes of operation in higher education and to aid professional practice curricula.
The day will focus on ways to structure and apply flexibility to empower all work-based learning stakeholders to share implicit and explicit responsibility for new learning that maintains work-life balance and well-being. We will also explore the balance needed between employers’ expertise and scholarly knowledge in order to plan and credit professional engagement within higher education.
The conference will address the following themes:
- Opportunities and challenges for apprenticeship learning
- Accreditation and individual recognition of pre-existing learning
- Mental health and work-based learning
- Industry credentials and accreditation
- Working practices organisations
- Conceptualising Trust amongst partners/mentors/coaches
- Digital learning (artificial intelligence, online portfolios, learning analytics)
We invite delegates to suggest further collaborative topics for the day’s discussion.
Proposals for Conference presentations/workshops/posters (300-500 words maximum) should be sent to the co-convenors by the 18th of April 2019.
