CASAE/CSSHE Graduate Student Pre-Conference
Saturday May 29, 2010

Following in the footsteps of the 2008 Congress pre-conference, the Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education (CASAE) is inviting graduate students from the Canadian Society for the Study of Higher Education (CSSHE) and CASAE to the attend the second Graduate Student Pre-conference. This event will focus on issues that students in the fields of adult education and higher education have identified as a priority. The pre-conference is open to students participating in the CASAE or CSSHE conferences.

In this session, a panel will discuss their experiences from two
perspectives: the transition from working life to graduate
studies, and the transition from doctoral studies into
employment. They will offer advice and insights on adjusting to
graduate life and finding employment post-graduation.

Based on feedback from the 2008 pre-conference, students
wanted opportunities to make connections with other students
working on similar topics. This break-out session will give
students an opportunity to meet in small groups to share their
research and strategies for proceeding through graduate studies.
