Latest News & Events

The purpose of this section is to provide a guide to CR&DALL events and activities and to provide information on these and on events and issues relevant to the field of lifelong learning and adult and continuing education in general. This latter service is provided to assist exchange of information and discussion of issues amongst colleagues in the field; it does not purport to be an exhaustive reference to the canon. Please note also that CR&DALL cannot be responsible for the accuracy of information provided to us by outside bodies. Further information about the event or activity should be sought from the contacts given in that section as this is likely to be the sum total of information provided to us.

None of us could ever have imagined how the education of our lifelong learners would have changed during 2020.  We have all embraced new technology, some have worked remotely and yet we probably know more about our colleague's lives than we ever have - with cats, dogs, children, and even our elderly relatives popping in to our daily online meetings via Zoom, Teams, or similar platforms.
