SCUTREA Registration of Members' Interests

During SCUTREA's 2015 Conference held on 7-9th July, participants had the chance to register their interests into a common database, which will be shared with all members. Our Chair, Ellen Boeren, collected 31 pen and paper responses. For those who did not complete the sheet yet, or for those who could not attend the conference, we would warmly invite you to register your interests using the link to the online form:

As you will notice, you have the opportunity to select from a wide range of activities. The team will analyse the responses soon and will discuss which actions we can undertake to make further contributions to the field. Everyone - including non-SCUTREA members - can fill in the form, however the results will only be shared with members. If you are interested in joining SCUTREA please see the Membership page.

SCUTREA 2015 has begun!

The 2015 SCUTREA Conference - 7th until 9th July - is now underway! It's brilliant to see the discussions and ideas reflected on Twitter and the conference Facebook page. This is a crucial time to be discussing adult education given the present climate.

Don't forget to keep tweeting using the special conference hashtag #SCUTREA2015 and @SCUTREA14. And remember to follow the Lifelong Learning Centre at the University of Leeds - @LeedsUniLLC - who have done an incredible job of organising and hosting this conference. We're very grateful in particular to Lindsey Fraser, Rebeca Brook and Georgina Collins.
