The theme of this year’s conference is: Resilience, Risk, Preservation: the evolving world of adult literacies. Adult language, literacy and numeracy educators and learners need resilience to adjust to the evolving economic, social and political climate. This means being bold, adaptable, flexible, courageous and willing to take risks. The organisers are calling for presentations.

Adult language, literacy and numeracy educators and learners need the resilience to adjust to the evolving economic, social and political climate. This means being bold, adaptable, flexible, courageous and willing to take risks.

A major risk for educators is the range of external pressures which threaten the continued provision of quality programs. The risk for learners is not reaching their full potential. For the preservation of quality programs all stakeholders must be influenced by current research, maintain professional standards, advocate, and engage learners in order for the sector to evolve and maintain relevance.
