Education Research Conference (AERC), will be held at the University of Victoria, Victoria, BC., Canada,
June 7, 2018. This year’s preconference theme is: Lifelong Learning and Adult Education in the
Changing Global Context: Perspectives from the East, the West to the Rest. The purpose
of the Asian Diaspora Adult Education Pre-conference is to provide a forum for scholars/researchers,
policymakers, adult educators and adult education graduate students among East, West, and the Rest, to
exchange academic perspectives, dialogue for fuller understandings, and promote learning vigorously from
interconnections, collaboration, and engagement with the world. Reviewing theories, models, and practices of
adult education and lifelong learning from different cultural traditions and societies enables us to seek broader
concepts, richer theories, and alternative practices, and to make meanings in specific contexts and relative
perspectives. This preconference hopes to become a meaningful vehicle for critical dialogues and exchanges
between the East, the West, and the Rest. Proposals on lifelong learning/education and adult
learning/education in the changing global context and other related topics are welcome to submit.
