LEARNING LIVES CONFERENCE
Encouraging, Supporting and Recognising 'Lifewide' Learning in Universities & Colleges
Wednesday 26th March 2014
Clore Management Centre, Birkbeck, University of London
The purpose of the conference and accompanying e-book is to draw attention and stimulate discussion about lifewide learning and the many ways in which universities and colleges are encouraging, supporting, valuing and recognising the learning and development students gain through their lifewide activities and experiences.
The conference will provide an opportunity for people who are interested in lifewide learning to meet others who share your interest and consider the practicalities, challenges and benefits of encouraging, supporting and recognising lifewide learning in universities and colleges. The conference will be of particular interest to people who are involved in leading, managing and supporting student development through co- or extra-curricular skill-based awards, or who are involved in learning and development activity outside the academic curriculum. It will also be of interest to PDP practitioners whose schemes aim to encourage learners to reflect on their involvement in the wider world.
Speakers include: Dr Christine Redecker, Professor Marcia Baxter Magolda, Professor Ronald Barnett, Harriet Barnes & Professor Norman Jackson
