2007 PLA Conference -- May 29 to June 1, 2007

The 18th Annual PLA conference Transforming Adult Learning Practice in the 21st Century will be held at the Ramada Inn in Belleville, Ontario from Tuesday May 29 to Friday June 1, 2007. One of the highlights of this year's conference will be a plenary session outlining the major findings of a two-year research study to test the application of 8 principles which characterize high performing Adult Learner Friendly Institutions (ALFI). The ALFI Principles provide an approach to the provision of services to a broad spectrum of adult learners within a single, holistic framework that views the totality of adult learners’ needs as being important. The ALFICan study with some refinements can significantly contribute to the development of an adult learning policy for adult learners from coast-to-coast in Canada.

GOAL - The Guidance Oriented Approach to Learning

Description:

“The Guidance-Oriented Approach to Learning holds that educational success is enhanced as students are exposed to career and life planning and are able to integrate this into their classroom learning. GOAL is all about personal growth. Through curricular and extra-curricular activities, young people develop their identity, make choices, and apply cross-curricular competencies in real life situations that give them their vision of the world of work. To do this, they need support from parents, teachers, and the community.” (Source: The GOAL Post. Fall 2006. Vol. 3, No.1.) To learn more, visit the website.
