29.6.11: Arriving in Glasgow, Scotland

Posted in General issues |

Today we headed to Glasgow, Scotland for the Forum for Accessing and Continuing Education (FACE) 2011 Annual Conference. Once in Glasgow we made our way to the campus residences. We put our luggage in our rooms and headed over to the conference. As newcomers to the FACE, we had the opportunity to attend a welcome session facilitated by the executive chair of FACE, Professor John Storan. It was nice that the scholars also had opportunity to attend the European Access Network conference because it introduced them to some of the issues that currently exist within the different education systems.

The evening finished with an amazing dinner at the Glasgow civic chambers. We had the opportunity to meet a government official. She personally interacted with us (the McNair scholars) and spent a lengthy bit of time answering our questions about the sights and history of Glasgow. The setting and the food were was absolutely amazing.
