Making Learning Happen - a report on the PASCAL event held at UCL, 4 May, 2018

Written by Josef Konvitz on May 15, 2018 07:05 am

The PASCAL seminar, “Making Learning Happen,” was well-attended by some 30 delegates from across Europe on 4 May 2018.  Thanks to kind generosity of LLAKEs (http://www.llakes.ac.uk) and its head, Professor Andy Green, we convened in a room at the UCL Institute of Education.  The seminar provided an opportunity for associates and key contacts - new faces and old friends - to discuss learning in cities and metro-regions and their links to rural hinterlands, and to shape future PASCAL work in Europe.

Darlene Clover and I are returning to London on the train from Wolverhampton where we had the pleasure of attending a conference organised by the irresistible Sir Alan Tuckett on the subject of The Learning Age 20 Years on.

Looking forward to a few role for adult educators

Budd Hall’s note on ‘The Curious Incident of the Disappearance of the Policy Discourse of Adult Education in England’ revives the forgotten nature of adult education.
