DVV International is currently supporting a Study on Public Financing of Popular Adult and Lifelong Education (ALE). This is an important aspect of ALE in the context of CONFINTEA VII and the SDG Education 2030 Agenda. Popular ALE includes community, citizenship, liberal, general, environmental activities, and public financing includes local and national funding as well as support for staff and infrastructure.
As a member of the Advisory Group for this work, I am very pleased to announce the launch of the Global Survey on higher education institutions’ contribution to lifelong learning.
We were saddened to learn of the passing of Michael (Mike) Richardson on Saturday 19th September 2020. To those of you who knew Mike well we offer our condolences and remember the tremendous work he did for UALL. Our thanks to Dick Taylor for this fitting tribute to Mike:
COVID-19 has affected all our working practice since March this year. As we all take a look at ways in which we can move forward it is interesting to see the strategies which are being put in place across the world as well as the pitfalls some of us face.
I trust this email finds you well and for those of you who are returning from a well-earned break that you are refreshed and looking forward to the new Academic year. The Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of Warwick requires two external examiners for their BA Social Studies programmes. More information is below.
