Adult literacy colleagues: I hope you will consider participating in the Virginia Institute for Lifelong Learning (VAILL) 2013 conference to be held at Radford University in July.
"VAILL is a staff development opportunity funded by the Office of Adult Education and Literacy in the Virginia Department of Education for adult education practitioners who work in programs funded by that office. Practitioners can attend this three day event by completing and submitting the registration form along with the registration fee. During the course of the three days, participants will choose the workshops they attend. This year, they will be able to choose workshops from the following strands: ABE/ GED, Career Pathways, GED 2014 and Close Out of GED 2002, ESOL, Program Leadership, Secondary Credentials, Literacy, and Technology. Participants come from across the Commonwealth so there is the opportunity for learning in structured workshop sessions and during meals and other activities. Publishing vendors will be present to “show and share” their wares for use in adult education programming" (VAILL planning board).
We are looking for workshop proposals on technology integration, adult education best practices, ESOL literacy and civics instruction, and workforce / employment skills. This is a wonderful opportunity to share your expertise with adult ed colleagues from around the state. If you are interested in attending as a participant, registration,which includes dorm lodging and meals for the entire conference, in only $30!
I hope you will consider VAILL 2013 this July at Radford. Thanks so much and hope to see you there! Susan
