April Already?!

Time is flying by here at the Press and suddenly April is upon us! Not long now till the London Book Fair but in the meantime a few words should be said about another event that Lutterworth was proud to be part of, the Universities Association for Lifelong Learning (UALL) annual conference 2012. Anyone following this blog will know that this is where we launched Adrian Barlow’s new book Extramural.

‘The book unequivocally exceeded my expectations…I strongly recommend Extramural to those who advocate for lifelong learning.’ Dr James M. Shaeffer Sr. Associate Vice Provost for Outreach and Engagement, James Madison University,VA.

It was incredibly fitting that Extramural was launched at the UALL event as the work is a direct result of ideas sparked by a joint paper produced for a previous UALL conference by Adrian, then Director of Public and Professional Programmes at the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education, and Philp Healey, then Director of Public Programmes at the University of Oxford’s Department for Continuing Education.

And so to Clare College, Cambridge, where, between fabulous meals and inspirational sessions, some of Continuing Educations finest met, mingled and discussed the past, present and future of Continuing Education.

More details of the event itself can be found on the brand new UALL website (complete with photograph, provided by yours truly, of the winners of the UALL Award. An award in recognition of projects, programmes and practices that promote lifelong learning in the university sector).

Among such a crowd of enthusiasts the book was very well received and the incoming flood of praise can be monitored right here in the Links We Love section and, of course, on our website.
