The 58th Annual Adult Education Research Conference will be hosted by The University of Oklahoma University Outreach, Thurman J. White Forum and Conference Services, June 9-11, 2017. Preconferences will be held on June 8.
Over the years, there have been a number of pre-conferences organized as a part of the Adult Education Research Conference.
African Diaspora Pre-Conference
The purpose of this pre-conference is to provide a forum in which graduate students can engage in research and critically dialogue about theoretical and practical issues related to the education of adults in the African Diaspora.
The purpose of this pre-conference is to provide an opportunity in which scholars from both Asian ancestry (East) and the Rest can enhance learning about Eastern and Non -Western perspectives on issues, concerns, and problems relevant to the adult education research and practice in the global context. This pre-conference intends to offer a forum for faculty, scholars, and graduate students who are interested in researching, contributing to, and learning about the East to present their scholarship and research.
There are two awards given at the Annual Adult Education Research Conference.
The Cunningham Award for Social Justice
The Cunningham Award for Social Justice was established at the Adult Education Research Conference in 1996. The award celebrates the contributions Dr. Phyllis Cunningham has made to the field of Adult Education. Her life-long commitment to equity and social justice set the standards for our field and are constant reminders of the democratic ideals set forth in Adult Education literature.
Graduate Research Award
The Graduate Research Award is designed to encourage, support, and recognize students’ research contributions at the Adult Education Research Conference.
