Adult Higher Education Alliance Annual Conference

The Spirit of AHEA:
Engaging Communities and Enlivening Practice

October 6-9, 2009

Chicago, IL

At the heart of the Adult Higher Education Alliance (AHEA) is our commitment to promote creative and effective teaching and learning opportunities for adults. Central to that mission is the goal of fostering a rich exchange of ideas about theories and practices relevant to our adult students and to our own development as professionals.

For more than 25 years, the annual conference of “The Alliance” has been an important opportunity for adult higher education professionals to share resources and information, to stimulate practitioner research, to become aware of work outside our own institutions, and, above all, to share ideas and experiences that help us critically reflect on our everyday activities.
