Festival of Education and Lifelong Learning launches today!

National College of Ireland launches the first annual Festival of Education and Lifelong Learning, hosted by the Centre for Education and Lifelong Learning (CELL) June 16-18.

This year, the Festival of Education and Lifelong Learning considers the impact of the sector’s necessary response to Covid-19 restrictions and how this might influence the future of education. Current Education students also have the opportunity to share their research, offering an insight into the latest pedagogic approaches.

“It is an appropriate reflection of the times that our first festival takes place off-campus, and that we have shaped it to fit with the differing demands on attention and concentration required by an online event,” says Dr Leo Casey, Director of CELL at NCI.

Interest in the festival means there are only a few places left. There is no charge for attendance, but advance registration is essential.

The Centre for Education and Lifelong Learning offers a range of programmes for education and learning professionals. Faculty are at the forefront of education and learning innovation with research and practitioner expertise in Early Childhood Education and Care, Further Education, Technology Enhanced Learning, Lifelong Learning and design for 21st Century skills. CELL also provides professional support for Teaching Enhancement and Learning Support throughout National College of Ireland.
