From 15 to 17 February 2023, the Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences, in collaboration with International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE), the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and further partners, will host the third Lillehammer Lifelong Learning ICDE Conference.
Under the theme, ‘Lifelong learning for lifelong employability’, the conference will cover key issues, trends and best practices on three themes: Authorities and transnational organizations (policy-making); Education sector and public/private enterprises (development and support); and Educators and learners (implementation; teaching and learning).
The conference is aimed at the business, public and education sectors, including research and policy levels.
UIL Director, David Atchoarena, will share the Institute’s perspectives on the conference theme during the first conference’s panel discussion ‘Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Development, New Jobs and the Green Shift’ on 15 February 2023, 16:45 CET.
Drawing on its research in the field of lifelong learning and higher education, UIL will, furthermore, organize a symposium on universities’ role in building learning cities, as part of the conference. The symposium includes a presentation of research results as well as practical inputs from members of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities. It will take place on 16 February 2023, 13:00 to 14:30 CET.
