Conferences & Events

As part of GCWAL’s mission to promote Work-Applied Learning (WAL), we host conferences which have a heavy emphasis on WAL and collaboration. This involves presentations and group reflections that provide participants with the opportunity to reflect on their own practices, research, and programmes. These conferences offer our clients and collaborative partners a chance to mingle with each other and WAL experts from across the world. Attendees share their experiences with WAL and discuss cutting edge research in WAL concepts, processes, and applications.

Our most recent conference focused on Reflective Practice, Occupational Health and Safety, Telecommunications Construction, Work Readiness and Work-Based Facilitation and Education. The keynote speakers were Greg Crossman and Professor Jonathan Garnett, who spoke on developing and recognising high level learning through, at and for work.

Greg Crossman recently retired as the Chief Officer and Chief Executive of the Metropolitan Fire Service and the Australian representative and Director of the prestigious International Fire Chiefs Association of Asia (IFCAA).

Professor Jonathan Garnett is the Academic Director of the Global Centre for Work-Applied Learning. He was the Director of the Institute of Work-Based Learning and Professor of Work-Based Knowledge at Middlesex University and has over 21 years experience at the leading edge of the development and operation of Work-Based Learning partnerships.
