Thinking Beyond Borders: Global Ideas, Global Values


Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday, June 1-3, 2008

Preconference Saturday May 31, 2008





Come join us here at UBC in Vancouver for the 2008 CASAE Conference that will be part of the Congress 2008. The call for papers is out (proposals due November 30th). We hope to have the largest turnout yet.


This year’s Congress and CASAE conference theme Thinking Beyond Borders: Global Ideas, Global Values connects to issues that have long been prominent in CASAE-ACÉÉA. While adult education in Canada is often distinguished for its local and community-based flavour, Canadian adult educators have also distinguished themselves for their deep appreciation of the global nature of adult education practice, policy and research. Thus, the theme of this year’s conference opens a wonderful opportunity for participants to delve deeply and critically into the meanings and implications of globalization for the research, theories and practices of adult education.

Registration & Accommodation

Registration will be done through Congress; all participants will be required to pay a nominal Congress registration fee in addition to CASAE’s (fees have been adjusted accordingly). Registration will be done on-line; Congress will begin accepting registrations mid January.


Accommodation is also being coordinated, and will include inexpensive dormitory-style single/double rooms and small apartments (both on-campus), as well as hotel rooms (off-campus).  Since demand for on-campus accommodation will be great, we strongly suggest you reserve your room ASAP!
