Learning in later life: characteristics, issues, exemplars and benefits - Glasgow, October 16th, 2018

This seminar explores the character of learning in later life from varied perspectives. What are defining features of learning in later life? What issues for stakeholders loom beneath the surface? What might constitute exemplars of practice in this field in an international context? What benefits is it possible to strongly link to learning in later life? These and related questions form the basis of this seminar which will combine presentation of ideas from the seminar leader and views from participants through constructive dialogue.

Reconstructions of Adult Education: An invitation

November 2019 will mark an important educational centenary: the publication of the Ministry of Reconstruction’s Final Report on Adult Education. The report, largely authored by R.H. Tawney, set the groundwork for liberal adult education in Britain for the rest of the 20th century. Its centenary is, we believe, a vital opportunity to reflect on the needs and possibilities for adult education today.
