ASEM LLL HUB Research Network Conference 'Workplace Learning in the Digital Era'

The ASEM LLL HUB Research Network on Workplace Learning (RN2) is holding a network conference ‘Workplace Learning in the Digital Era’ in the University of Innsbruck between 4th and 6th November 2019. The Network aims to develop frameworks for understanding how opportunities for lifelong learning, including professional and personal development at work, are distributed, structured, experienced and used. Through exchange of information, workshop discussions and joint studies of how workplace learning is provided, practised and understood in Asian and European countries, RN2 is building up a shared body of knowledge that is empirically based, contextualised and theoretically informed.  The aim of the November 2019 network conference is to review progress and to advance specific lines of inquiry, in advance of the relaunch of the ASEM LLL Hub later this year. It builds on the Bernd Rode Award (2019), which has recognised the Network for project excellence. The network conference will focus on the three themes:

  •  1. Employer engagement in vocational skills development and lifelong learning for young people;

  •  2. Global learning spaces: understanding learning in global work;

  •  3. Professional identity of young adults who learn in the workplace as part of their vocational education. The aim is to develop the agenda for the network’s activities over the next 2 years.

The conference is open for a limited amount of ASEM Partners and Stakeholders (maximum 10), on a first come first serve basis and on own expenses.
