OVERVIEW: Launched in April 2014, the Harlem Adult Education Conference is designed to facilitate the community-based exchange of tools, strategies, and research among members of Harlem's adult-education community in order to build stronger connections and expand learning opportunities. Instead of lecture-based sessions that revolve around a single person, HAEC workshop facilitators guide peer-to-peer learning, ensuring all participants meaningful opportunities to both offer and acquire useful, solution-oriented information. The theme of our Fall 2016 conference, "The Politics of Adult Education: Advocacy for Access," highlights the current and potential role of inclusive, strategic, and sustained collaboration in securing supportive policies and sufficient funding to meet the needs of Harlem's adult learners.
We look forward to learning from and with you!
