The day will focus on three main areas of discussion:
  • What do we mean by community engagement?  Exploring theoretical approaches from Scotland, England and Canada
  • The role and challenges of community-based adult education: project approaches
  • The role of universities and their involvement in community engagement with marginalised communities.
This will be followed by a summary discussion on what lessons are to be learnt and where do we go from here?
