This year’s conference title and theme is “Together We Grow: Enriching Communities through Adult Education.”
WWU’s Woodring College of Education and the WRRCEA are hoping to expand the conference from its solid inception to an even larger resource and destination for educators, trainers, educational institutions and community members involved in adult and lifelong learning.
The conference will include adult education research presented in papers, roundtables, and poster presentations that explore current practice and theory as well as programming designed around the conference’s theme.
