Due to the COVID-19 pandemic organizers have elected to postpone the RWL12 conference to July 2022. The RWL12-Toronto Organizing Committee remains fully committed to fulfilling our vision of an in-person conference event when it is safe to do so. Please see our full announcement for further details.

Kind regards,

Your RWL12 Toronto Organizing Team

The 12th International Researching Work & Learning Conference (RWL12) will take place at the University of Toronto, July 2022.

The conference aims to bring leading researchers together to explore contributions to theory, policy and practice revolving around our main theme of Work, Learning & Social Change. 

Please explore our conference sub-themes to see the many ways your work can make a contribution.

We, in turn, are exploring the possibility of alternative formats such as virtual presentations for those unable to travel to Toronto. And as we continue to monitor the current global pandemic situation closely we will provide updates when available.

We invite your proposal submissions and hope you will join us at RWL12.
