Towards a Culture of Belonging in Adult Education

Thursday 24 October 2019, 10:00 – 13:00
Registration from 09:30

A seminar organised by Human Development Scotland to consider what constitutes a meaningful culture of belonging and how this might contribute to learning, retention and mental resilience in adult education organisations.

• Exchange and explore experiences of alienation and belonging in educational situations
• Investigate how a culture of belonging might mitigate against current polarising extremes of opinion—political, social, economic, ecological
• Develop strategies to generate a culture of belonging for participants to take back to their places of employment as working ideas.

Human Development Scotland plan to offer the option of a follow-up seminar in the Spring of 2020 to review the viability of the various strategies discussed. CPD certificates will be issued following the event.
