About HGLV Forums
Each year we host four themed forums and the Annual HGLV Research Conference, drawing together professionals from various fields to present on learning related topics.
Guest speakers inform, inspire and support the work of our members and provide a broad perspective on learning, community development, education and research. By attending the forums, you have the opportunity to speak directly with guest presenters and discover new learning methodologies through participation in workshops and group discussions.
It is a great opportunity to network, share information and hear about recent research findings and what they mean in the context of learning in our community.
Watch the keynote presentations from our previous forums.
