By 2020, 75% of Colorado jobs will require post-secondary education, according to the Colorado Department of Higher Education — do you know how to help adult learners succeed and meet this demand? This summer, thought leaders focused on adult education from across the Front Range will gather at the University of Denver to discuss ways to navigate the landscape of higher education at the 2019 Colorado Adult Learning Symposium (CALS).
Hosted by University College, the University of Denver’s college
of professional and continuing studies, CALS is part of an ongoing strategic
effort at University College to lead and engage in critical discussions about
adult learner needs. CALS will provide an intentional space to address what
adult learners need and how institutions can meet those needs.
Geared for members of the higher education community who serve
adult learners, CALS will provide attendees with practical, applicable
strategies for addressing adult learners’ needs in our communities. From
successfully engaging adult learners in multigenerational contexts to teaching
with digital maps and spatial data, supporting neurodiversity in the online
environment to using data for high-touch advising, find a session that suits
your needs and interests. Tracks include:
- Supporting the Life Cycle of Adult Learners
- Utilizing Technology to Deliver Quality
- Considering Alternative Credentials and
- Engaging Different Types of Learners
- Creating a Strong Value Proposition for Adult
The University of Denver is committed to delivering enduring professional growth and personal development by providing adult learners access to high-quality education through alternative educational pathways. Through CALS, we hope to foster active discussion, interactivity, and—most of all—practical strategies that symposium attendees can take back with them and put to use in their own institutions. Join us on August 16! $45 per person, includes lunch and parking.
