The Centre for Research & Development in Adult and Lifelong Learning (CR&DALL) of the University of Glasgow, the Institute of Education of University College London, and the ASEM Lifelong Learning Hub (ASEM LLL Hub) with the support of the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) will organise a Symposium on “Policies Supporting Adult Education for a Sustainable Life Course: Asian and European perspectives on Education, Work and Citizenship” on 7-8 June 2016 in Glasgow, the United Kingdom.

This symposium will bring together the ASEM LLL Hub Research Network on “National Lifelong Learning Strategies” and the ASEM LLL Hub Research Network on “Workplace Learning”. The 1st Research Network explores lifelong learning policies and practices in the framework of national socio-economic development, giving particular attention to citizens’ motivation and barriers to continue education and training. The  2nd Research Network focuses on workplaces that exist not simply in companies and public services, but equally across a wide range of organisational and social contexts, such as in the third sector (non-profit-making NGOs, voluntary work, etc.) and in diverse forms of self-employment, including  irregular and precarious conditions. For both, ‘life-work-learning’ interplay between workplaces, institutions, family and community is a key framework for understanding how opportunities for lifelong learning, including professional and personal development at work, are distributed, structured, used and experienced in Asian and European countries.

The symposium in Glasgow follows the successful LLL conference on Engaging Young People in Lifelong Learning in Asia and Europe by the EU Centre at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in December 2015.
