Who and what are universities for? Local communities, global competitiveness and the part-time student
20-22 March - Durham University

The Full Conference Programme is now available - and as you will see we have a very impressive number of papers and poster sessions; we are equally impressed by the quality and variety of the papers - including from international delegates - Canada, the USA, and for the first time for UALL, China.

As a taste of the variety we have papers on:

Museums as true centres of lifelong learning
Reflections on New Labour's claim for a 'learning age'

European Union policies on lifelong learning
Postgraduates as part-time tutors
Is lifelong learning the new holy grail for universities?
Peer support for ownership of learning
and humanities for developing people as well as employability

In addition we have some excellent poster sesions on topics as wide-ranging as retention strategies for mature sudents, and a unique project on employability for small rural communities through creative craft skills.
At the Conference Dinner in Durham Castle we have our book launch and the eagerly-anticipated UALL Awards for Innovation.
Please do register if you haven't already!
I very much look forward to seeing you in Durham.
