FACE 2011 Annual Conference

The FACE 2011 Annual Conference will be hosted by the Centre for Research and Development in Adult and Lifelong Learning at the University of Glasgow.

Keynote Speakers

Prof Andy Furlong, University of Glasgow
Prof Wendy Purcell, University of Plymouth
Prof Catherine Hoppers, University of South Africa
Prof Keith Popple, London South Bank University

The four key themes of the conference are:

1. Higher Education provision and its contribution to community development: contributions may be economic, social, health-related, environmental or cultural, or a combination of one or more of these. ‘Community’ in this context may vary from one small discrete group through to a whole region.

2. Aimhigher and its Legacy: whilst this is a particular concern in England, papers are invited also from other parts of the world where there are similar initiatives: these may take the form of reflective pieces from an external perspective.

3. The role of Qualifications Frameworks and Accreditation of Prior Llearning (APL) within community settings.

4. Universities and their regional and local role within contracting economies.
