Learning to be Professional through a Life-wide Curriculum
Surrey Centre for Excellence in Professional Training and Education (SCEPTrE), University of Surrey, Guildford
Tuesday March 31st & Wednesday April 1st 2009
A life-wide curriculum
maximises opportunity for embracing the most inclusive concept of
learning (whole life learning) and for encouraging and valuing learning
and achievement from the widest range of experiences available to a
learner. In this conference we want to encourage exploration of the
concept in the context of enabling learners to develop the qualities,
skills and personal agency necessary to become a good professional.

Practitioners and researchers
are invited to submit an abstract of up to 400 words using the template

learners gain insights to and experience of the professional world:
their journeys and stories of learning to be a professional
- Qualities, skills and personal
agency needed to be a good professional and how these are developed
through modules and programmes that seek to integrate learning from
academic study, work, volunteering and other life experiences: the idea
of a life-wide curriculum.
