Research overview

I work with the Lancaster University Continuing Learning Group (CLG), an education programme aimed at older learners but open to all.  My background is primarily in audio/multimedia technology and digital learning.


Here is a little about the Continuing Learning Group…


The CLG consists of:

Lunchtime Lecture Series

Research & Discussion Forum

Open Lecture Scheme (facilitating older people’s inclusion in undergraduate lectures)

Online Education Tool (making the Lunchtime Lectures available to all)

Research Group (available to benefit PhD students and organisations)


The Continuing Learning Group came out of the Senior Learners' Programme, which was founded in 2006 as part of the Department of Continuing Education's long commitment to supporting older people's learning and Lancaster University's ongoing widening access and participation agenda.


In 2009-10 a Government Transformation Fund project, the 'New Learning Adventure', was the basis of a very productive learning partnership between the Department of Continuing Education and Lancaster and Morecambe University of the Third Age (U3A).


These partnerships and projects continue, but have moved from the Department of Continuing Education to the Centre for Ageing Research (C4AR).
