Call for Presenters: COABE LAPCAE 2013 Conference
Posted on 09/07/2012
Presenters are now invited to submit proposals for the 2013 COABE LAPCAE Conference to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana on March 24–27, 2013. The Conference is co-sponsored by The Commission on Adult Basic Education (COABE (www)) and The Louisiana Association for Public, Community, and Adult Education (LAPCAE (www)). This year's keynote speaker will be Troy Landry, as seen on the History Channel's "Swamp People."
The Conference Committee would like potential presenters to consider these areas of inquiry:
- What is the role of the workforce education system in a global economy and what role should adult education play in that system?
- How do we balance the increasing emphasis on workforce development with the varying educational and social needs and goals of adult students?
- To meet 21st century demands, what should take place in the 21st century adult education classroom and why?
- What does an adult education system built for student learning look like and why?
In addition, The Program Committee is interested in presentations that highlight outstanding and innovative practices in all aspects of adult education — including basic literacy, family literacy, adult high school diploma and GED instruction, English as a Second Language, English Language Civics education, correctional education, post-secondary-transitions and student re-entry programs, workforce development, career and technical education, community education and other areas relevant to the field.
The deadline for proposals for both the pre-conference and the conference is November 30, 2012. Presenters will be notified of the status of their proposal on December 15, 2012. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
