NCTN’s Effective Transitions in Adult Education National Conference
November 13 – 15, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza at the Crossings, Providence (Warwick), RI.
The Effective Transitions in Adult Education National Conference hosted by NCTN at World Education, is a chance for adult education, workforce development, and postsecondary educators, advisors, and administrators to gather together to affirm a shared vision of access to educational and economic opportunity for adult learners. The conference is designed to strengthen our practice, and catalyze collaboration as we experience changes in the national landscape that affect our work at the local level.
For the first time, this year an IET Institute will take place on November 12-13, preceding the conference: The Nuts and Bolts of Designing IET Programs: Models, Tools and Tips for Success.
The EdTech Center will be active at the conference with a booth, workshops and our annual EdTech Panel. Last year’s panel discussion is available as a recording: Leveraging Trends in Blended, Distance, and Mobile Learning and was summarized in a blog post.
