Brandy Agerbeck, CAEA Graphic Facilitator

Since 2007, the School for New Learning has hosted a series of programs, conversations and conferences for adult learning practitioners across sectors via the Center to Advance Education for Adults. CAEA began with an initial generous grant from SNL alum Trish Parson and the Mason Parson Family Foundation with continued support from The Bertram L. Scott/Elizabeth A. Fender and the Mason Parson Family Foundation and other university,
community and business sponsors.

Recent programs have focused on current issues in adult learning, including: global diversity and inclusion, adult transitions in life and work, emerging technology, learning trends, research and practice. Programs have featured diverse speakers with a wide range of provocative perspectives, including Consuls Generals from many nations, Andres Tapia, Elliot Masie, Margaret Wheatley, Dr. Roosevelt Thomas, and many others. Many events are live-streamed so you can participate over the internet. CAEA also hosts regular book discussions in collaboration with Chicagoland Learning Leaders and community conversations on burning issues in adult learning and development.

Center director, Pamela Meyer, invites all current students and alumni who are interested in the field of adult learning to participate in the CAEA community, “Our mission is ‘to create community among adult learning practitioners across sectors to exchange ideas and inspire imaginative strategies for learning in diverse settings.’ If you are looking for a place to connect with creative, thoughtful practitioners and enjoy the support of a growing community of practice, this is the place for you.”
