and Stylus Publishing are proud to announce the publication of the
InternationalCompendium of Adult & Continuing Education and welcome you to
its launch at the 66th Annual Conference in Memphis. The ICACE is an
excellent resource for multidisciplinary scholars, graduate students, and
scholarly practitioners, providing a thematic organization of concepts that
explain key aspects of adult and continuing education. Contributors from
throughout the global adult education community offer insights into the four
major areas of: Adult Learners, Teaching and Learning, Leading and
Administering, and Inquiry and Influences. There will be various opportunities
to learn more about the ICACE throughout the conference, with presentations by
its core editors, Alan Knox, Simone Conceicao, and Larry Martin, as well as
contributing authors. We are also excited to invite you to an ICACE book
signing at the Stylus Publishing booth. Stay tuned for more details on that.
