ISSUES IN PROFESSIONALISM CONFERENCE
Centre for Educational Research (CER) Annual Conference

Issues in Professionalism

Tuesday 5th July 2011   13.00 – 17.30,

Universityof Derby

What does it mean to be a ‘professional’ today? Is it to be compliant and regulated or is it still possible to be an autonomous professional, whatever your discipline is? The idea of a ‘new’ professionalism is increasingly discussed but the meaning of professionalism is now uncertain.

The conference will open with a Keynote Speech by Gary McCulloch, the Brian Simon Professor of History of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, who will place professionalism in its historical context. Various issues in professionalism will then be examined in a series of workshops and the day will end with a panel debate around the question “What does ‘professionalism’ mean today?”

I am pleased to invite you to the next meeting of the Learning and Skills Research Network London and South East branch to be held on Friday, 5th June, 2009 from 2.00 – 4.00 pm. RSVP to me below. Thanks to Rania Hafez of the University of East London, who has kindly agreed to host this meeting on behalf of UEL and LSRN LSE.

Please note that this meeting was originally pencilled in for this Friday, 8th May, but we have needed to change that. I hope this does not inconvenience you.
At the 5th June meeting, we are aiming to elect NEW CO-CHAIRS for the LSRN LSE Network. We have had two nominations for the two new Co-Chair roles for Sai Loo and Rania Hafez. If any other network member would like to be considered, please can you send an expression of interest to me by the 3rd June. Otherwise, if there are no other nominations, we will aim to discuss and propose the election of the new Co-Chairs on 5th June. I’ll follow up this email with an update message with minutes and the agenda.

We look forward to seeing LSE LSRN colleagues again on Friday 5th June!
