10th Anniversary of Asian Diaspora Preconference with AERC

The Tenth Asian Diaspora Adult Education Pre-conference provides a forum in which scholars from both an Asian ancestry (East) and the West (including the Rest) may learn from each other, share Eastern, Non - Western perspectives on teaching and learning practices, current research issues, concerns, and future visions relevant to adult learning and education. This pre-conference offers an opportunity for adult education faculty, scholars, practitioners, and graduate students who are interested in researching about and contributing to, the East to present their scholarship and research projects. In the global context, knowledge production becomes an active and applicable process that involves interconnections, collaboration, and engagement with the world. Learning has thus become more collaborative and international. Learning, in this context, has gone global. Global learning enables adult learners to know broader concepts, theories, and practices, and give meanings in specific and relative contexts (Andreotti & de Souza, 2008). Thus, learning globally becomes critical for meaningful and mindful dialogues and exchanges between the East and the Rest.
