29 EUCEN Conference
28-30 April 2005
University of Bergen, Norway
The conference aims to bring lifelong learning back onto the agenda of the Bologna process. It will address the challenges of higher education institutions in providing lifelong learning opportunities for all and in designing targeted professional development programmes. These challenges also include the opening up of higher education institutions through the recognition, validation and accreditation of non-formal and informal learning.
Hence the conference will focus on three main themes: Continuing professional development/education, Recognition of non-formal and informal learning, and Open and distance learning/e-learning, all seen from three perspectives, a policy perspective (EU and Government), a strategic perspective (institutions, organisations and businesses) and a practice perspective (academics, trainers, practitioners).
