Many practitioners, scholars, and researchers work across a wide range within higher education and are aware of the cultural implications for the curriculum, the geographic differences, and how technology is now being used to communicate. This conference hopes to bring together contributions from this wide range of practice and to discuss how work and learning professionals are involved in these developments.
The conference will address the following themes:
It can be argued that most learning models have either underplayed the influence of context, or have approached this issue mechanically. It is therefore hoped that the concept of workplace 'context' and the learning which occurs within and between the dynamic frameworks of professional practice and learning will be energetically debated.
Proposals for Conference presentations/workshops (300-500 words maximum) should be sent to the co-convenors Elda Nikolou-Walker (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Paula Nottingham (email@example.com) by 15 April 2016. Proposals from new researchers are particularly welcome.
Conference presentations will be considered for development into articles for possible inclusion in a special edition of the Journal of Higher Education, Skills and Work Based Learning or in the Middlesex University e-journal Work Based Learning e-journal International
