The Adult Education Research Conference (AERC) is an annual North American conference that provides a forum for adult education researchers to share their experiences and the results of their studies with students, other researchers, and practitioners from around the world.

In a sense, the AERC is also a retreat for members of the adult education community; an informal, collegial gathering where all are encouraged to enter into lively debate over the future direction of research in adult education.

The 61st Annual Adult Education Research Conference will be hosted in conjunction with the Adult Education in Global Times (AEGT) International Conference hosted by the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC June 4-7th 2020
