UALL 2017 Annual Conference - Update

5-7 April 2017
UALL 2017 Annual Conference

Lifelong Learning: Local, regional, international?

We are pleased to let you know that once again, we have had a good response to the Call for Papers – with the same number of proposals as last year.  We have an impressive line-up for the international panel and the keynote speakers are:

Professor Karen Stanton, Vice Chancellor, York St John
Professor Alice Warren, Vice Provost for Continuing Education, North Carolina State University

The theme of the Conference: Lifelong learning: Local, regional and international? has strands addressing the context of lifelong learning which enhances local, regional and global development as well as sustainable partnerships for economic and social development.  Presenters of papers have the opportunity to be considered for publication in a special issue of a mainstream journal.

The Annual Conference is the high point of the UALL year, and we are pleased that the 2017 Conference will be held at the Monkbar Hotel, York between Wednesday, 5 and Friday, 7 April.  The outline Conference Programme, registration and further details can be found HERE

The Conference will start on the Wednesday evening with an informal buffet at which we welcome all our delegates, international members and guests to York.  This will be followed by two days’ conference and will finish on Friday with lunch.  The Drinks Reception and Conference Dinner will be held on the Thursday evening.

We very much hope you will be able to join us and we look forward to seeing you in April.
