Meeting of the Scottish Resource in Education and Development
UKFIET (the Education and Development Forum of the UK) and the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change at the School of Education, University of Glasgow, invite you to a meeting of the Scottish resource in Education and Development. Read more.
The meeting will bring together members of relevant Scottish and UK government departments, academics based at Scottish universities, and Scotland-based NGOs working on education in the Global South. The Scottish government sees education as an area where Scotland can make a meaningful contribution in lower-income countries, and it supports education projects and research as part of its commitment. Additionally, geography means that academics and others working in Scotland may have fewer opportunities to attend meetings held in the South-East of the UK. It is important that we know who is working on education in these contexts so that we can support policy and programme development, respond to Scotland-based and wider collaborative opportunities, and learn from each other. A good starting point is to know who we are.
When? 27th April 2017, 1:00 – 5:00 (programme 1:30 – 4:30; coffee/tea available at 1:00 and 4:30)
Where? Room 433 a/b in the School of Education, St Andrews Building, 11 Eldon Street, Glasgow, G3 6NH
Participation is free but places are limited and so registration is essential.
A programme for the day will be sent out to registered participants and be available on the UKFIET website one week before the event. Please come prepared to discuss your own and your organisation’s interests and how the Scottish resource in Education and Development might work together.
For information on UKFIET and registration for the event, please contact Sarah Jeffery, UKFIET Programme Manager. For information on the purposes and plans for the afternoon, please contact Michele Schweisfurth, Chair of the UKFIET Board of Trustees and Director of the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change.
