Welcome to the CASAE/ACÉÉA website! We had our 30th anniversary in 2011 which we celebrated at OISE/University of Toronto. CASAE/ACÉÉA was founded in 1981 to promote the study of adult education and networking among adult educators in Canada. Over the past 30+ years, CASAE/ACÉÉA has played an active role in advocating adult education as a field of study and practice at both national and international levels.
We had a very successful 2012 conference at Wilfrid Laurier University with many graduate students attending and presenting. It takes a community to create a conference -- praises go to the planning team for a great gathering.
We are now planning for the 2013 CASAE conference which will take place June 3-5, 2013 and will be part of the CONGRESS of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Victoria. Preconferences and site visits are being planned for June 1 & 2 - stayed tuned for more information. We thank Darlene Clover and her team for their willingness to work on the program for the 2013 conference. You will hear more about the conference in the coming months. The call for proposals has gone out and the deadline is October 15th. Please go to http://www.casae-aceea.ca/?q=node/30 the 2013 conference page of the Web site for more information. We'll continue with the collaborating with CSSE, Canadian Society for the Study of Education and CSSHE - Canadian Society for the Study of Higher Education that began at the 2012 conference and we are moving forward with even more coordination for the 2013 conference.
As we embark on a new academic year that is bringing challenges for many, we welcome your comments and suggestions. In the past 30+ years adult educators have been resourceful in creating and/or responding to social change and we anticipate that creativity and commitment once again.
