The Adult Education in Global Times conference will take place 3-6 June 2021. Originally scheduled for June 2020 at the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver, the event will now happen online. The conference hosts presentations from active adult education scholars across the world including a number of researchers from CR&DALL.
We are pleased to announce that the project, Local, place-based, and community-driven approaches to peacebuilding, has been funded under the British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grant programme with a grant of £9,803. The project is led by CR&DALL core member, Yulia Nesterova, and seeks to draw on diverse conflict and post-conflict contexts to develop a local, place-based, community-driven model of peacebuilding through education and learning that can be adaptive to different contexts.
Join us for the fourth of five exciting events that focus on key issues in educational research. The focus of this webinar is research at intersections between culture, literacies, inclusion, and pedagogy, notably in regions of conflict, and through a focus on the arts, children's literature, and literacies.
For the benefit of CR&DALL subscribers who no doubt will be interested, here featured below and attached is the Asia South Pacific Association for Basic and Adult Education (ASPBAE) statement of solidarity with its members in Myanmar.
This report was released on 20th December with hardly any publicity but I think it’s very important. A copy is featured below and the link is at the House of Commons website.
Although it only applies to England I think its findings and recommendations will be of interest to the whole adult learning community.
The School of Education at the University of Glasgow, in conjunction with the Centre for Research and Development in Adult and Lifelong Learning (CR&DALL), the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change, and the UNESCO Chair in Refugee Education through Languages and the Arts invites you to our Webinar Series 2021.
This call is for article submissions for a special edition of the Studies in the Education of Adults journal on the theme of 'Lived experience, community activism and social change'.
The pessimism on the super-aged society that has developed across the country in Japan for around 30 years has finally begun to dissipate and has found symbolic expression as “the era of the 100-year life”.
We are already moving from the past industrial society to the next new society. In this new society, people live in a diversified and shrinking society based on uniqueness and relationships. Its concrete practice is an attempt to confirm the creation of countless “small societies” where people exercising their own agency become the leading actors.
What we see in various practices in local communities is the “movement” where people create and renew the self through interactions with others. There, the “small society” is reconstituted continuously, creating overlapping multiple layers. People move freely between these layers, creating a more diverse “society”.
There, the process of creating “society” is through “learning”, and the process of “learning” is also recreating “society” itself. Only through this dialectic will social trust emerge. People will trust each other through the “movement” of “learning”; “society” will continue to evolve, and people will continue to dynamically construct their own existence. Thus, people’s existence itself is embodied in “learning” and “society”.
