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:

COABE National Conference

The EdTech Center, in partnership with Northstar Digital Literacy Project, leads the Digital Literacy strand for the Coalition on Adult Basic Education’s (COABE) national conference. In 2017, the Digital Literacy strand included 12 workshops on topics including teaching computer skills to low-literacy adults, distance learning, and integrating technology into classroom instruction. We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 conference to be held in Phoenix, Arizona on March 25-28, 2018.
