The ProPEL Conference will be held at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia in December 2019.
ProPEL: Professional Practice, Education and Learning Conference
ProPEL is a collaborative, multi-professional international network at the University of Stirling, launched in 2010 to promote research and knowledge exchange in issues of professional education, practice and learning. Conferences draw scholars from a range of countries, disciplines and theoretical orientations.
We are delighted to confirm the keynote speakers – all distinguished researchers in the professional learning, education and practice field.
