NCTN’s Effective Transitions in Adult Education National Conference
November 12 – 14, 2018 Cambridge, MA.
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.
The EdTech Center takes an active role at the conference each year with a booth, workshops, and our annual EdTech Panel. EdTech Center panels have included:
- 2015: Promising Models in the Use of Technology.
- 2016: Leveraging Trends in Blended, Distance, and Mobile Learning (recording). Also available summarized in a blog post.
