The Centre for Learner Identity Studies (CLIS) is holding the third annual conference on learner identity, themed around ‘Equity, Identity and Education’, from Thursday 7th to Friday 8th July 2011 at Edge Hill University.

The 2011 conference focuses on the ways in which institutions, practices and identities interact and impact educational outcomes and experiences in inclusionary and/or exclusionary ways.

CLIS is Edge Hill University’s Faculty of Education Research Centre. It aims to bring together scholars whose research examines or critiques the socio-cultural context that gives rise to the diversity of learner identities, and the pedagogical conditions that affect and determine identity formation and transformation.

Arthur Chapman, Centre for Learner Identity Studies Co-ordinator, said: ‘Our 2011 conference focuses on the ways in which instituCLISConferenceProgramtions, practices and identities interact and impact educational outcomes and experiences in inclusionary and exclusionary ways. Any learner’s motivation to learn, achieve and aspire to self-development is profoundly shaped by who they believe themselves to be and by processes that shape that self-perception. The conference will present a valuable opportunity to share research and perceptions around contemporary educational identities.’
