Research-to-Practice Conference in Adult and Higher Education
Friday, September 20, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 4:30 PM (CDT)
St Charles, MO
Lindenwood University is proud to announce the 32nd annual meeting of the Research-to-Practice Conference in Adult and Higher Education (formerly known as the Midwest Research to Practice Conference). This year the R2P conference has been revitalized with a new name, the additional strand of trends and issues in higher education, as well as a modified schedule. We welcome new presenters who never experienced the past Midwest Research to Practice Conference as well as long-time contributors to this unique venue. A new preconference for faculty will provide a forum for discussion of issues and best practices in supervising and teaching of graduate students.
This conference provides a collegial atmosphere for graduate students who are encouraged to submit a roundtable or poster proposal for research in progress. A preconference targeted specifically to master's and doctoral students will be held the morning of Friday, Sept. 20. In addition, an award is presented to the best graduate student paper.
The conference provides a forum for practitioners and researchers to discuss practices, concepts, evaluation, and research studies to improve practice in the education of adults. Through discussion and collaboration, participants contribute toward the realization of a more humane and just society through lifelong learning.
The 2013 conference, which will be held on the campus of Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo., offers opportunities for dialogue and reflection on the dynamic relationship between learning and life, on both current and future opportunities for educators who work with adult learners in a variety of educational settings including higher education.
For more information about the conference, please contact Dr. Beth Kania-Gosche (email@example.com).
When & Where
Founded in 1827, Lindenwood is a dynamic four-year liberal arts institution dedicated to excellence in higher education. Nestled amid the beautiful linden trees, our historic 500-acre campus is situated in the heart of St. Charles, Mo., a growing community of 62,000 just west of St. Louis.
We offer more than 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to approximately 17,000 students through values-centered programs that lead to development of the whole person. Our faculty, staff and administration are committed to an integrative liberal arts curriculum that focuses on the talents, interests and future of our students. Lindenwood is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Lindenwood University is known nationally and internationally for innovation, entrepreneurship and extraordinary dedication to students. We believe that education is the way to personal freedom and responsibility, which are the keystones of any democracy. We have a liberal arts heritage that goes back more than 185 years. In that time, we have learned how to educate in a way that helps each student become an enlightened, principled citizen of a global community.
Lindenwood is an independent institution firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian values. Those values include belief in an ordered, purposeful universe, the dignity of work, the worth and integrity of the individual, the obligations and privileges of citizenship and the primacy of truth.
