ESREA and SensePublishers Free, Open Access Books on Adult Education

There are four free, open access books published in a collaboration between ESREA and SensePublishers. You can find all the published books here:

However, of particular interest are:

1. 'Working and Learning in Times of Uncertainty: Challenges to Adult, Professional and Vocational Education', edited by Bholinger, Haake, Helms Jørgensen, Toiviainen and Wallo. 
This book analyses the challenges of globalisation and uncertainty impacting on working and learning at individual, organisational and societal levels. Each of the contributions addresses two overall questions: How is working and learning affected by uncertainty and globalisation? And, in what ways do individuals, organisations, political actors and education systems respond to these challenges?
2. 'Learning across Generations in Europe: Contemporary Issues in Older Adult Education', edited by Schmidt-Hertha, Jelenc Krašovec and Formosa:
This book provides the basis for an in-depth analysis of the understandings and interpretations of education and learning in later-life, rethinking the development of different approaches for education of older adults, as well as diverse research and evaluation of different forms of older adults’ education and learning.

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.
