CASAE/ACÉÉA was established in 1981 as a vibrant and energetic organization that provides a supportive network for graduate students, faculty members, researchers practitioners and policy makers who are engaged or interested in adult education scholarship. Membership to our association is open to all individuals and institutions – both formal and informal – who are interested in the field of adult education. More information about our membership can be found under the Membership tab.
We hold an annual conference in May or June, usually in conjunction with the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences’ Congress; the proceedings of past conferences can be found under the Conferences tab.
CASAE/ACÉÉA also publishes an academic journal, The Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education (CJSAE). CJSAE publishes original reports of research, critical reviews of the literature of adult education, biographical and autobiographical reflections on the field and practice of adult education and book reviews. More information, particularly submission guidelines, can be found under the Journal tab.
CASAE/ACÉÉA maintains active links with comparable organisations around the world, including the the Adult Education Research Conference (AERC), the European Society for Research on the Education of Adults (ESREA) and the Standing Conference on University Teaching and Research in the Education of Adults (SCUTREA).
