Professor Ellen Boeren

  • Professor of Education (Education)

Biography

I joined the University of Glasgow on the 1st of July 2019. Before that, I worked at the University of Edinburgh for 7 years and 2 months. I hold a PhD in Educational Sciences from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium.

*** NEW ESRC PROJECT *** 

For the period April 2023 - March 2025, I am leading a £605k FEC ESRC Standard Grant project on the state-of-art and use of adult learning and education statistics across the countries of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

*** COLLEGE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES RANKINGS CHAMPION ***

I am currently the CoSS rankings / league tables champion. For this role, I analyse data from leading international and domestic league tables to feed into subject strategies.

*** CAREER TO DATE ***

I specialise in adult education and lifelong learning and have considerable experience in working with large international organisations. I undertook a prestigious Thomas J. Alexander fellowship with the OECD, co-edited the Fourth Global Report on Adult Learning and Education with UNESCO Institute of Lifelong Learning and worked as a consultant for the European Commission. I also led the Scottish team within the EUR 2.5 million Horizon 2020 project ENLIVEN 'Encouraging Lifelong Learning for an Inclusive and Vibrant Europe'.

My publications include my monograph 'Lifelong Learning Participation in a Changing Policy Context: an Interdisciplinary Theory' for which I won the 2017 Cyril O. Houle Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Adult Education Literature. I served as Chair of the Standing Conference for University Teaching and Research in the Education of Adults from 2014 - 2017 and was one of the editors of the high profile journal 'Adult Education Quarterly' between 2019 - 2022.
