ADULT LEARNERS DEBATE ON CAMPUS

 

A conference to raise awareness of adult learning in Lincolnshire will be staged at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside on 6th May.

 

‘Lincolnshire Adult Learners 2000’ will be the first such conference to be held in the county and will give delegates an opportunity to discuss adult learning and to expand informal networks.

 

The day will begin with an informed view by Bill Newton-Dunn MEP on how European perspectives may affect adult learning in the UK.

 

Other talks will be given by Pamela Weaver of the university’s Centre for Access and Lifelong Learning and by Mike Carnaby, a former student of the year, who describes himself as a man with a mission to encourage others to become successful returners.
