The UALL Work and Learning Network Annual Conference 2019

The UALL Work and Learning Network Annual Conference 2019

Learning for, at and through work:
capturing workplace learning for transformative Higher Education

Friday 28th June
University of the Arts London, 272 High Holburn, London WC1V 7EY

The conference aspires to contribute to practitioners understanding of pedagogic tools that transcend the traditional modes of operation in higher education and to aid professional practice curricula. The day will focus (through keynotes, presentations, workshops, poster sessions, networking) on ways to structure and apply flexibility to empower all work-based learning stakeholders to share implicit and explicit responsibility for new learning that maintains work-life balance and well-being. We will also explore the balance needed between employers' expertise and scholarly knowledge in order to plan and credit professional engagement within higher education. 

The conference will address the following themes: 

  • Opportunities and challenges for apprenticeship learning
  • Accreditation and individual recognition of prior learning (RPL)
  • Wellbeing and work-based learning
  • Working practices in healthcare and early years
  • Conceptualising trust amongst partners/ mentors/ coaches
  • Digital learning, e-portfolios and the Impact of technology

Keynote speaker: Professor Anita Walsh, Department of Management, Birkbeck University of London
Title: Work-Based Learning: Higher Education for the 21st Century?

Cost: £90 includes refreshments and lunch (Concessions £80 for UALL members)
