Bloomsbury Academic has just launched a new series of publications under the title ‘Adult Learning, Literacy and Social Change’. One of the volumes will be edited by Jules Robbins and myself under the title Adult Learning and Social Change in the UK: National and Local Perspectives. A call for abstracts for this follows below.
This is the monthly e-Bulletin from FACE (the Forum for Access and Continuing Education), offered to practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and others with an interest in access, widening participation and lifelong learning.
We are very pleased to announce that Bonnie Slade, a core member of CR&DALL, will become the Chair of SCUTREA. Our PhD student Nicola Dickson will remain Honorary Secretary. These are great honours for Adult Education at the University of Glasgow, and further underlines our contribution to the field.
Behaviours that pose challenges to adult educators can impact on a learner’s capacity to engage. Developing relationships that lead to positive outcomes, can form the basis for helping adults learn how to learn. In order for adult educators to create safe learning environments, it is necessary to understand what motivates these challenging behaviours. If we understand these causes, we can better meet the needs of all students.
We are pleased to announce the release of the Call for Papers for the International Bilingual Conference on Lifelong Learning: the State of the Art to be held in Cotonou, Benin from the 2nd to the 4th of June 2021 at the Golden Tulipe-Hôtel Le Diplomate.
