Connecting with a networked community of practice associated
with the Universities Association for Lifelong Learning
and the University Vocational Awards Council
ABOUT OUR NETWORK
Our aim is to create a responsive, connected and beneficial network for our community, which would involve the sharing of resources, advice and conferences. The network receives regular updates regarding these benefits via our news and updates. Regarding our conferences, the conference steering committee helps to plan the annual conference, offers suggestions for strategic development, and links the network to our community of practice.
Membership includes many UALL members for many different universities - Jon Talbot has been working on our updated contacts for the network. We welcome colleagues and friends to the events we have, which include an Annual Conference, usually in or around the month of June. We encourage networking for members - on things like suggestions for external examiners etc. Our expertise ranges a great deal, with a focus on both practice and research.
