ALA 2017 conference update

Exploring possibilities, changing lives

13–14 June 2017, Hobart, Tasmania

Join us for an inspirational two-day event that celebrates the transformative power of lifelong learning. Our exciting program presents research and insights on successful adult learning initiatives that empower individuals, promote social equity and build learning communities.

Our conference highlights the power of education in helping people overcome disadvantage. Keynote speakers, presenters and panelists will share successful strategies for working with a range of learners, including adults with low literacy, migrants, asylum seekers, Indigenous Australians and people with mental health issues or disability. Our conference is particularly relevant for adult educators, teachers, tutors, academics, librarians, social policy makers, community development workers and people working in social enterprises and local government.

Network with like-minded professionals from around Australia and take the opportunity to visit adult education programs combined with tours in and around Hobart.

We hope that you can join us for what promises to be an informative, thought-provoking and fun conference.
