CDLT Purpose Statement
In recognition of the growing influence of online and other distance learning technologies on adult learning, AAACE supports the CDLT to provide members with opportunities to share best practices and research on how adults are learning in networked learning environments. Our goal is to increase communication and collaboration among adult educators across academic, workplace, community, and other settings who have an interest in sharing their knowledge and practice about learning with virtual technologies.
The committee further agreed to move forward with five core activities over the short term:
- Posting of the CDLT's new purposes statement, contact information, and incipient activities on the AAACE website
- Activating a discussion group, focusing on distance learning and technology as related to adult learning, within the AAACE's existing Linked-In professional networking site
- Publishing a CDLT newsletter
- Forming committees and identifying leaders to help move specific projects forward
- Offering educational webinars
