The FACE (Forum for Access and Continuing Education) annual conference 2012, which was held at the University of Ulster this past July was a huge success and attracted scholars interested in access to education from across the globe. Delegates arrived from Australia, Sweden, Polynesia, the USA, Europe, and Africa to make the event truly international. The conference theme was widening participation to education in “divided communities”.
The keynote speeches were particularly impressive, please do take the time to watch and enjoy!
