The School of Teacher Development at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) is sponsoring an academic from the National University of Kuwait to help them undertake a trip to the United Kingdom.

Dr Suaad Alshebou, a former doctoral student of BGU’s Professor Chris Atkin, will be visiting Lincoln to engage with the academic life at BGU. As part of her visit Suaad will be giving a public lecture at BGU on ‘Non-traditional students in traditional universities: motives and barriers of female adult learners in Kuwait’

Through her work at the College of Basic Education, Public Authority for Applied Education and Training Associate Professor Dr Alshebou conducts research in Higher Education, Comparative Education and Adult Education. Her current project is ‘Non-traditional learners in traditional colleges. A feminist perspective’. Professor Atkin described his excitement at the fresh perspectives Dr Alshebou’s visit would offer:

“It’s a real honour to be hosting Dr Alshebou during her time in the UK and I look forward to her contribution to academic life at BGU

The public lecture being hosted by BGU on the 6th December will provide an opportunity to learn something of the challenges and rewards faced by non-traditional Kuwaiti adult women learners engaging with traditional universities.

Dr Alshebou will be in the UK for the remainder of this academic year and will bring a valuable comparative perspective to academic life at BGU.”

Dr Alshebou’s lecture will take place on Thursday 6 December at 2:00pm in CSH 02 on the BGU campus and will be introduced by the Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil, Vice Chancellor of BGU, in his capacity as Chair of the Universities Association for Lifelong Learning (UALL).

It is open to all current and former BGU staff and students as well as members of the public. For further details please contact Professor Chris Atkin via chris.atkin@bishopg.ac.uk
