It is with great sadness that we report of the death of one of the leading lights of adult education of the 20th and 21st century, Professor Chris Duke. Chris, amongst many other positions was a visiting professor at the University of Glasgow, and made extensive practical and conceptual contributions to CR&DALL in the past two decades.
ASPBAE and the adult education movement has lost another one of its own. On 22 June 2023, Dr. Chris Duke, former ASPBAE Secretary General (1972-1985) passed on.
Chris Duke was a towering figure in the adult education movement. A significant part of what ASPBAE has accomplished and reached today is built on Chris' vision and exemplary work. ASPBAE owes him a huge debt of gratitude.
We wish to bring to the attention of CR&DALL subscribers a recently posted Lectureship in Education at the University of Glasgow with additional research support that is now live on the Schools of Education's Global Talent page, where more details may be found.
The Journal of Vocational Education has issued a call for a special edition that explores the social role of colleges in international perspectives (featured below and attached).
