The Adult Education in Global Times conference will take place 3-6 June 2021.

Professor Bonnie Slade will contribute to a session on ‘Learner-centred education and adult education for migrants’ together with colleagues from the IMAESC programme and will discuss ‘International online partnerships: Building cooperative global citizenship amid local particularities’ with Amy Pickard.
