ALA webinar: Adult learning, crises and the ‘new’ normal

Presenter: Robbie Guevara
When: Wednesday 29th July @ 1pm - 2pm AEST
Duration: 1 hr
Cost: Free for members | $50 non-members

We, as adult educators, responded to the multiple crises we faced. We, as adult educators, identified the crises as an opportunity to advance our own work. And now… how do we harvest the fruits of these crises and make our communities and leaders recognise and value the role of adult learning and education in what has been described as the ‘new’ normal?

Robbie will draw on his conversations with other adult educators from around the world and highlight lessons that may be relevant to us in Australia.
