The Researching Work & Learning (RWL) International Conference Series is the world’s longest, continuously running international research conference series serving the field of workplace learning. It was initiated in 1999 by researchers at the University of Leeds (UK). As of 2021 it will have visited ten countries in five continents.
Throughout, it has sought to recognize the multi-disciplinary character of this research area by actively promoting involvement across scholarly disciplines including but not limited to the following: Adult Education, Labour Education, Higher Education, Vocational Education, Human Resource Management, Business Studies as well as the full range of human sciences scholarship where matters of both work and learning are considered.
At the same time, the conference series has also sought to actively maintain linkages to practitioners who deal with matters of work and learning. These include but are not limited to the following: human resource managers, vocational trainers, union educators, community educators, school teachers and so on.
