7th Nordic Conference on Adult Education
and Learning, 3-5 May 2017
Adult education in the age of global mobility
The multifaceted theme of global mobility, which we address at this 7th biennial Nordic conference on adult education and learning, reframes the classical question of whether there is such thing as a Nordic model of adult education and prompts us to ask how well Nordic adult education has adapted to our age of global mobility. What processes of transformation, reinvention, and reframing are going on, in practice as well as in theory? Contributions relating adult education to various frames of reference are welcome. As in the previous conference, one session strand is dedicated to popular education and nonformal adult education.
Venue: School of Education and Communication, Jönköping University, Sweden
