  • About WRRCEA

    This biannual conference, in the western region of the US and Canada, is a collaborative effort of universities with graduate programs engaged in the study of the education of adults. The conference provides a forum for practitioners and researchers to present research, and to learn, debate, explore ideas, collaborate, and dialogue with each other. Papers, roundtables, symposia, and poster presentations that discuss practices, concepts, evaluations, and research studies for educating adults will be presented. Professors, graduate students, researchers, teachers, trainers, and administrators are invited to join the discussion and collaborative effort to share theory and practice on the education of adults.

    WRRCEA 2013 is co-sponsored by the Adult Education and Training program at Seattle University, the British Columbia chapter of the Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education (CASAE-BC), and the Puget Sound chapter of the American Society for Training & Development (ASTDps).
