48th eucen Conference

Dublin (IE), 1 - 3 June 2016


Dublin City University and the Higher Education Research Centre present the announcement of the 48th eucen Conference: Crossing borders through Lifelong Learning: Enhancing Quality and Equity in Higher Education

Lifelong Learning programmes provide bridges for adult students who wish to enter higher education, particularly those from under-represented groups. This conference will contribute to a dialogue across Europe on crossing different types of borders- geographic, disciplinary, institutional and generational- with a view to improving access to higher education for new groups of students. The conference will be of interest to those involved in promoting and supporting access to higher education including researchers, policy makers, administrators and teachers working in higher and adult education.

Participants are invited to contribute papers, workshops and posters many of which will be published in conference proceedings.
