The ‘Reforming Learning: Driving Success’ Conference, 5th December 2014

Reforming Learning: Driving Success
A Conference focusing on Senior Cycle and Third Level Education in Ireland:
Are we preparing our young people to meet their own needs, the needs of our society, the demands of the workplace, the changing nation?

In the current context of rapid social, economic and cultural
changes these questions are timely as they are important. The
‘Reforming Learning: Driving Success’ Conference at NUI
Galway on 5th December, 2014, aims to provide some answers to these questions and related issues.
Policy makers, researchers and practitioners with experience of change and policy development within education and enterprise, both national and international, will share their knowledge and expertise in what promises to be an engaging Conference.

Comprising two exciting keynotes and three robust panel
discussions, this one-day Conference will provide an
opportunity for those interested in education and its future
to engage in collaborative discourse and sharing of ideas. A primary focus of the conference will be the learner experience at upper second level, whether it enables smooth transition to third level, the learner experience in third level and their preparedness for the workplace.

It is the intention of this conference to inform a White paper in this area.

Conference Chair: Senator Dr. Fidelma Healy Eames
