ASEM Global Lifelong Learning Week 2022

The 'ASEM Global Lifelong Learning Week', is scheduled to take place in-person (with some events also online) from September 26th to September 30th in Cork, Ireland. The focus of this week is on the topic of lifelong learning; however, this is also an opportunity for a large network of academics and partners to meet in person for the first time post-COVID.

Some of the events scheduled throughout this week are co-hosted by the ASEM Lifelong Learning Hub and its partners, such as: Adult Continuing Education UCC,  ECOLHEInternational Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame, and Cork Learning City.

The International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony 2022 takes place at University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland on 28 September.

As part of the events, Prof.(Hon), Dr.h.c.mult. Arne Carlsen, former Director of UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning, will deliver the Annual Albert O’Rahilly Public Lecture, on Thursday 29 September. It celebrates this year the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Adult and Continuing Education Department of UCC. Alfred O’Rahilly was President of UCC who was responsible for the creation of the adult education department in 1946.

Also inducted: Michael Osborne (PASCAL and University of Glasgow), Francesc Garcia, Licínio Lima and Niamh O'Reilly.

The lecture is planned as part of a joint event which will also include the annual Bertram Windle Award, which this year will be given to Professor Maria Slowey, Director of Higher Education Research Centre, Dublin City University. It will coincide with Learning City Day which includes several other activities in association with Cork UNESCO Learning City.
