The Higher Education Lifelong Learning Ireland Network (HELLIN) is delighted to extend  a call for Posters for its 5th National Conference on Lifelong Learning in Maynooth University on Dec 7th 2018.

The HELLIN conference in Maynooth University Friday 7 December 2018 will endeavour to ask some difficult questions of the whole landscape of the formal education system and posit an alternative vision through the lens of Lifelong Learning of how things might be better achieved below the surface of mere custom and acceptance of the un-reflected assumed norm.

This call is for ABSTRACTS under one of the following themes:

1) Lifelong Learning and Higher Education (Policy and Practice, CPD)

2) Experiences of Diverse Learners (e.g. older learners, migrant learners)

3) Advice, Guidance and Information.

Posters can explore current or recent research, innovative programmes or practice on one of the areas outlined above.

Abstracts of 500 Words to be submitted to on or before 30 Sept 2018.  These abstracts will be reviewed and feedback will be provided to all by the end of Oct.  A number of posters will be selected for inclusion in the conference.

Should you have any questions in relation to the conference please contact Additionally, if you are aware of somebody who may be interested in the themes of the conference or in submitting an abstract to us, please forward this communication to them.
