6th Nordic Conference on Adult Education and Learning

Posted by Eva ALOS MELCHOR 5 years 12 months ago

Wednesday 25 March 2015 to Saturday 28 March 2015
Tampere
,

Both the theory and practice of adult education have developed much as a response to societal and economical change in a nation-state context. Currently researchers, practitioners and policy-makers of adult education are witnessing consequences of globalization, not only as increased interaction and mobility across different kinds of borders, but also as financial and economical, social and environmental crises at a global scale. The local challenges of adulthood are increasingly also planetary.
The loose umbrella of the sixth biannual Nordic conference on adult education and learning is the place and function of adult education in a planetary perspective. It invites researchers to discuss their topics and results in the tension-field of local and global. Contributions relating adult education to social, economical, ecological and cultural issues are especially welcome, but the conference is open to all interested in encounters and dialogues within the Nordic adult education community.
