Barking in the wilderness? Making the case for adult learning
9th October 2018 @ 5:45 pm – 7:30 pm
Sir Alan Tuckett presents:
Barking in the wilderness? : Making the case for adult learning
“How is it that at a time when there has never been a greater need for adult learning, there is so little public commitment to securing an informed democracy with critically engaged citizens. The onset of the fourth industrial revolution, greater longevity, climate change, and Brexit all pose challenges that cry out for opportunities to understand, adapt to and to shape change. Yet governments continue to be wedded to an exclusive and utilitarian focus on initial education and training. The talk will consider this conundrum and how best we can make the case for adult learning in challenging times.”
