Reimagining Further Education Conference

21 June 2017, Curzon Building, 9am-4.30pm

The Centre for the Study of Practice and Culture in Education () will host its second one-day Reimagining Further Education Conference this June. The conference will bring together practitioners, researchers and key figures in the field of further education (FE) and will cover a range of themes from adult and offender learning to Literacy, Teacher Learning and alternative education in FE.

In keeping with the event’s title, the conference format is designed to provide opportunities for collaboration and interaction amongst all those present. Instead of the conventional ‘stand and deliver’ format of many conferences, the event built around group conversations framed and facilitated by a discussant and chair for each of the 6 thematic strands included. By exploring positive, imaginative and creative ways forward that enhance agency in FE practitioners and learner, this event aims to put the ‘confer’ back into conference.
