April 28 to May 1, 2014, Adult Education and Literacy experts and practitioners from across North will gather for the first-ever Northern Adult Basic Education (NABE) symposium in Whitehorse, Yukon.
Adult educators perform a vital role, providing northerners with education, training and essential skills that allow them to participate more fully in the labour market.
Come share innovative ideas, research and best practices with your fellow professionals while celebrating the invaluable contribution you and your peers make to improved literacy, knowledge and skills. Learn about unique northern innovations while you foster new professional connections.
NABE Symposium 2014 will be three days of dialogue, learning and sharing that will strengthen and enrich your understanding of ABE and adult learners, and will enhance your own instructional skills and methods.
The 2014 NABE Symposium is a closed professional development event for individuals directly responsible for Adult Basic Education in one of the three territorial colleges.
In addition, the partners recognize that there are others who may benefit from, and contribute to the 2014 NABE Symposium and may be invited to participate, such as governments, non-government organizations (NGOs), First Nation/Inuit/Métis governments and organizations, and providers of adult basic education.
