Virtual Conference March 10-11, 2022
We invite you to submit a proposal for a virtual conference presentation that highlights the aspects of your work or research related to the conference theme or an aspect/issue relevant to the field of Adult and Higher Education.
Adult Education for the Human Condition:
Global Issues and Trauma-Informed Learning
Based upon the 2 AHEA-sponsored books for 2022.
Advancing the Global Agenda for Human Rights, Vulnerable Populations, and Environmental Sustainability: Adult Education as Strategic Partner (Alfred, Roumell, & Robinson, Eds.) is an accessible introduction to issues of adult education and sustainability grounded in literature, theory, and practice. The editors have carefully curated international voices and global perspectives. Consider it as a resource for a “Global Issues in Adult Education” course.
Critical Approaches to Trauma in Adult Learning (Douglass, Threlkeld, & Merriweather, Eds.) invites readers to think deeply about the experiences of trauma they witness in and outside of the classroom. If 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic have shown us anything, it is that trauma is inevitable, and trauma alters adult learners’ experiences. This collection includes a discussion of implications and practices for adult and higher education administrators and faculty who desire to create an environment that fosters learning and change for individuals who have experienced trauma.
