Adult Education

Self-Studies in Higher Education

We invite interested parties in the Faculty of Professional Studies, in other faculties, and in the wider UFV community to join this multi-disciplinary, multi-perspective exchange of ideas. Each session will include a reading to inform our discussions, including possible books that could be provided. The sessions will be designed to foster open, faculty-initiated exploration and exchanges across disciplines.

Dates:                   4th Wed of the month (see above)

Time:                    11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Place:                    C1429    (Nov. 28th - A203B)

Participate: (to register)

If you are interested in participating, please register for all or specific sessions. We will set-up a Blackboard shell for regular participants, so you are welcome to sign-up understanding that you may have to miss a few sessions. Alternatively, you can sign up for one or two specific sessions.

Remote Participation (via Collaborate): Remote participation is an option as we will set-up a Collaborate Session. You are welcome to attend without registering, but to receive the readings or to participate using Collaborate, you will need to register.

Over the next two semesters during the 2018-2019 term, we will be facilitating several high-interest, high-impact brown bag sessions (11 am – 1 pm) on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

Since participating in the Adult Education program, I have incorporated many of the skills and concepts into my everyday work. I feel strongly that my involvement in the Adult Education program has enhanced my work, and has given me the critical thinking skills needed to develop new programming and further my career.
