2º Conferència Internacional de la xarxa ESREA, des del 31 de Març al 2 d'Abril, a la Osnabrück University, Alemanya.

Pilar Pineda presentarà una comunicació basada en el projecte INN-FET. 

Continuing the 2011 re-launch seminar of ESREA’s Network on Working Life and Learning, we invite you to our second international conference at the Osnabrück University, Germany, to discuss workplace learning and development in times of globalization and uncertainty. Bridging working life and learning has gained momentum during the past decades. Education systems are seriously facing challenges resulting from globalization, demographic change and economic crises. The importance of flexible and individual modes of combining learning and working is increasing. Lifelong learning, professional development and skills development all imply intensive interactions between the world of work and various educational sectors and forms of learning. In addition, new global objects of activity, ethics and learning emerge at workplaces which call for collective co-configuration and reflection by the communities of practice. Adult and lifelong learning as well as vocational education and training thus represent an essential part of the political and research agendas of countries inside and out of Europe.

The conference brings together researchers from various nationalities, backgrounds and disciplines, and at different career stages to jointly discuss the latest developments in the field of adult, lifelong and vocational education and training. It provides in-depth insights into and discussions on workplace learning and development in times of globalization and uncertainty. Participants are invited to present papers, arrange symposiums or round-table discussions either linked to the overall conference topic and/or to one of the following sub-sections:

  1. Workplace learning
  2. Leadership for Learning and Development in Organizations
  3. Human Resource Development
  4. Vocational Education and Training (VET)
  5. Stakeholders and target groups in working life and learning

This 2nd International Conference of ESREA’s Research Network will take place from March 31 to April 2, 2014, at the Osnabrück University, Germany.

Pilar Pineda will present a paper based on the INN-FET project (more information in our research page).
