International network on adult learning
The Department of Behavioural Sciences and Learning (IBL) has initiated the establishment of a new international network on adult learning.
Ten universities in nine countries will participate. The network will focus on research in adult learning fields, including adult education, workplace learning and popular adult education.
In addition to LiU, the networking universities are located at Vancouver (Canada), Cape Town (South Africa), Seoul, (South Korea), Sydney (Australia, two universities), Gdansk (Poland), Stirling (Scotland), Trondheim (Norway) and Roskilde (Denmark).
Postgrad students accepted for research training at a home university will thus be able to maintain close ties with the international research community and leading scholars in their field.
"The network is a splendid opportunity for our postgrads to establish fruitful networks early in their research career. Research conducted over national boundaries realigns the adult education perspective from local to international. LiU is in the forefront with an exceptionally strong research setting, but establishment of the network will further consolidate and strengthen our academic acumen," says Madeleine Abrandt Dahlgren, IBL professor.
