The UALL Work & Learning Network
Work & Learning: Innovation, Evaluation and Dissemination within the Workplace & the University
In order to acknowledge the breadth of its interest in learning within workplaces and university settings the Work Based Learning Network has recently been renamed ‘Work & Learning’. The pivotal Network is now celebrating over 20 years of service in higher education and the professional world.
This conference will focus on the constant changing role of work and learning and the opportunities and challenges of sharing current and future practice.
The role of critical reflective practice will also be explored, in particular to review past ‘lessons learnt’ and their usefulness to inform and underpin future educational and professional practices.
Conference date: Friday, 26th of June 2015.
Conference Venue: Yunus Emre Turkish Cultural Centre, 10 Maple Street, London W1T 5H (Warren St. tube).
Cost: £80 including conference refreshments and lunch.
