Organized around the themes of teaching and learning, student affairs, and leadership, the conference will celebrate, and take stock of, the work of CMind over the last two decades, while presenting cutting edge ways contemplative approaches to inquiry and learning can further justice and compassion on college and university campuses and beyond. Through keynote presentations, interactive sessions, and contemplative workshops, participants will explore how diverse contemplative pedagogies and practices can support transformations on multiple levels – self, classroom, organization, community – and invite creative, unconventional approaches to how we imagine and seek to address the many challenges
of the 21st century.

PSYCHOANALYSIS AND EDUCATION:
CREATIVITY IN THE PSYCHOANALYTIC PROCESS AND IN LIFELONG LEARNING
Conference hosted by Canterbury Christ Church University
23rd to 25th November 2017
CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST IN PARTICIPATION
Following the successes of our previous events, this conference will develop further conversations about the relationships and tensions between psychoanalysis and education. We are keen to invite submissions to participate that involve both psychoanalytic theory and accounts of psychoanalytic practice (where applicable), and we define education in its widest context. We hope to welcome academic staff, teaching staff in other areas of practice, and of course colleagues working primarily in clinical settings.
The themes of this conference are Creativity, Psychoanalysis and Lifelong Learning. We encourage interested parties to consider these themes and to interpret them in ways that lend themselves to original and provocative ways of thinking. Queries are welcomed in the first instance, and when you are ready to submit, you will be asked to do so in one of a variety of formats. We will welcome traditional presentations and workshops (and please indicate which you are proposing). However, we are also keen to encourage less traditional formats of collaboration. As one of the conference themes is creativity, expressions of interest that propose a creative space in the conferences are warmly welcomed. For example, colleagues might consider a performance, something musical, a piece of artwork, film or fictional writing.
Although the following list is not exhaustive, areas that might be explored include:
Affect in practice
Biography and autobiography
Unconscious fantasies and writing
Literature, Art and Daydreaming
The Role of Obsession
Grief and loss
Death and dying
Sexuality and gender
Race and ethnicity
Mysticism and religious experience
Deadline for submissions: Friday 19th May 2017.
Please send your proposals to: email@example.com – please write ‘Psychoanalysis and Education Conference 2017 submission’ in the subject box.
Submissions (WORD format) should have no more than 500 words, Times New Roman, 12 points. The title of the submission should be clear and could you please indicate what the style of your submission will be (i.e. paper, performance, film discussion etc.).
Your name, the submission title, institutional affiliation, phone and email should NOT be included in the submission, but be on a separate page.
Proposals will be blind reviewed; acceptance will be announced by early July 2017.
Final papers, if appropriate, should be submitted by early autumn 2017
It is anticipated that selected papers will form the basis of a special issue of European Journal of Psychotherapy

FW: Assessment Tomorrow - The 2017 e-Vocational Conference In association with the Federation of Awarding Bodies
The pace of change in vocational qualifications and assessment with the T-levels proposals and apprenticeship EPAs, provides both challenges and opportunities.
There is little doubt that one of the potential opportunities is to bringing technology even further into assessment delivery both to ensure it is as relevant as possible and to make seemingly complex processes as efficient as possible.
With keynote addresses from both Mark Dawe, Chief Executive at AELP and Stephen Wright, Chief Executive at the Federation of Awarding Bodies, this promises to be an exciting event.
Bookings can be made online at www.e-vocational.co.uk.
We trust you or one of your colleagues will be able to join us for what will certainly prove to be another invaluable and thought-provoking event from Assessment Tomorrow.

DEL 2017: Teaching Making/Making Teaching
University of the Arts London,14 - 15 September 2017
The call for papers is now open for DEL 2017, which will be hosted at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, 14-15 September 2017. For more information and to submit, visit the DEL 2017 website. Deadline: 3rd April 2017.
DEL (Digitally Engaged Learning) is an international conference exploring and evolving digitally engaged teaching and learning in art and design Higher Education. We welcome submissions from individuals and groups across all creative disciplines, working in roles including instructors, lecturers, researchers, artists and designers, support staff, instructional designers and technicians.
Themed 'Teaching Making / Making Teaching', DEL 2017 seeks to explore digitally engaged practices and processes of teaching, making and researching within the creative disciplines.
By 'digitally engaged', we are referring to practices that are actively with, about or in digital tools and spaces. We take the creative disciplines to refer to a wide range of areas including (but not limited to) art, design, media, performing arts and music. We understand teaching, making and researching as uncertain 'crafts' that involve processes of self-discovery, experimentation, enquiry, reflexivity and development.
This year we have not defined conference tracks. We hope this encourages submissions that resonate with the overall conference theme, but that make sense in the context of the many disciplines and practices participants may be coming from.
There are a number of submission formats, designed to accommodate participants at different stages and places in their digitally engaged teaching and learning journeys. You can propose any of the following:
- Presentation of scholarship (creative practice, teaching practice, research)
- Panel discussion (2 presenters minimum)
- Micro teach/micro make
For more information and to submit, please visit the DEL 2017 website.
DEL 17 is an international partnership with Penn State University, Texas State University, The New School and the University of the Arts London.
