Third Final Notification and Call for Papers

The UALL Work and Learning Network Annual Conference 2017

Leading the Way: Shaping Practice in the Workplace and the Academy

The theme this year is about exploring the ways in which employers, academic practitioners, and learners in the workplace co-design university study that is both flexible and fit for purpose.

While the Apprenticeship agenda is now being launched more widely in higher education in the United Kingdom, continuing programmes for individual learners and corporate partners are being repositioned within the global university setting.

Practitioners and researchers in this field are actively engaged in leading the way to challenge and transform existing practice in the workplace and the academy.

The conference welcomes papers, workshops and roundtable discussions which contribute to research, theory, policy and practice in work and learning. Conference themes may cover all or some of the following:

• Apprenticeships and Skills
• Leadership in the Academy
• International Developments
• Sector Partners
• Adult Education and Coaching
• Staff Development
• Flexible Curricula and Work Based Studies
• Mature Students and Social Mobility

Proposals for papers, workshops and/or posters to be 300-500 words maximum and should be sent to the co-convenors by 16th May 2017. Details about these formats will be on the network’s website.
