Adult Education continues to support adult learners post-pandemic toward semblance of normalcy.

The CAEP Summit 2023 is an opportunity for you to share and discuss innovative and effective promising practices, strategies, and other resources anchored in the CAEP State Priorities: Equity, Leadership, Learner Transition, Marketing, Program Development, Program Evaluation, Technology and Distance Learning.

Proposal submission deadline: June 30, 2023. Applicants will be notified by: August 4, 2023.

Sessions might focus on curriculum alignment, contextualized instruction, selecting online content, or even highlighting successful use of commercial or locally developed curriculum in the core areas of ESL, basic skills, HSE, CTE, etc.
Equity (cultural awareness, cultural responsiveness)
Equity is about being fair and impartial with learners, partners, and the communities we serve. Workshop sessions in this strand should focus on methods for building cultural awareness and responsiveness.
Leadership (legislation, policy, fiscal, NOVA, staffing, systems design, team building, challenging conversations, managing telecommuting)
This strand will highlight sessions that deal with important things leaders need to know about successfully managing a consortium. Sessions might focus on regional and local policies, developing systems, or managing staff during these challenging times.
Learner Transition (college and career pathways, transition supports, counseling, student supports, and adult dual and co-enrollment)
Presentations in this strand could address how agencies and consortia are navigating learners in educational, career, or other paths as a measure to determine success. Sessions might focus on short-term CTE, integrated education and training, pre-apprenticeship, bridges and boot camps, and mirrored courses.
Marketing (learner recruitment, community awareness)
Marketing programs and learner recruitment are ongoing responsibilities for consortium members. It is also vital that local communities understand and support regional consortiums. Sessions in this strand should share successful marketing strategies and practices.
Program Development (annual planning, 3-year planning, building partnerships, student support, family and community engagement, leveraging funding, family literacy, integrated education and training, Navigators, Visions for Success and Guided Pathways)
