Background to RWL

The Researching Work and Learning (RWL) conference is the leading international research conference series in the field of work and learning. Established in 1999 by researchers at Leeds University it is convened every two years.  It is a critical platform for researchers and professionals to share research in work and learning, engage in dialogue with colleagues and experts from around the world, deepen their knowledge and advance the field.

Since 1999, RWL has been hosted by nine countries on four continents: England, Scotland, Canada, Finland, Australia, South Africa, Denmark, Singapore and China.  

The conference series is organised through the leadership of the RWL International Advisory Committee, in association with the Studies in Continuing Education Journal (2017-2018).
