The Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool
1st - 3rd April 2020
Second Call for Submissions
Deadline: 31st January 2020
Update: Conference organisers are pleased to announce that Lord Kerslake has agreed to be a keynote speaker for the 2020 Conference. Further details to come next week.
From all of us at UALL, Happy New Year! And to push away those January blues, I'm happy to announce that the second call for submissions is officially open!!
Submissions are invited for proposals for papers, workshops and posters in line with the conference theme of shaping a 2020 vision for mature learners and the sub themes:
Engaging, teaching and retaining lifelong learners
Work-based and work-related learning
Widening participation and mature students
Learning, maturity and motivation
The conference is underpinned by 3 core values:
We encourage submissions which focus on:
Policy: shaping the future of lifelong learning for mature learners
Practice: sharing practice
We would also value submissions for specialist workshops which focus on the professional development of practitioners to achieve a strong and changing future for lifelong learning e.g. how to: influence policy, publish, achieve professional accreditation, prepare submissions or bids to support practice
So now that I've convinced you to submit, you're wondering how do you submit?
Please send all applications to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st January
Please submit a short abstract, 300-400 summarising the focus of your paper and please indicate which theme you think your presentation falls best under to aid programming allocation.
Those accepted to present papers will be invited to submit a full paper after the conference for consideration of publication in a special issue of the Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning (Open University) journal.
At our 2019 Telford Conference, we hosted interactive workshops and extended discussions on key areas of development. Please send an abstract of between 250 - 300 word detailing the aims of your workshop and the ways in which you will engage participants in interaction.
We have programmed a dedicated slot to an informal showcasing of practice where delegates can speak to practitioners and hold informal conversations. These will be held linked to the conference sub-themes. Please send a short proposal (1-2 paragraphs) on what you would like to showcase and how it relates to a sub-theme.
That's it for now. Remember to follow our website and twitter for any conference updates.
Please note that I work part-time. My working hours are 9.00 - 14.30 Monday to Thursday.
