Series: Adult Learners’ Week in Nova Scotia

Authors: Literacy Nova Scotia

Collection: Learning Materials

In 2009, the theme for International Adult Learners' Week (IALW) in Nova Scotia was “Living and Learning for a Viable Future – The Power of Adult Learning.” Literacy Nova Scotia (LNS) celebrated the week a writing contest.

Winners in the contest’s four divisions were invited to present their submissions at a reception in Halifax. Here, the winner in the video category describes how learning changed her life.

Born in Mexico, she moved to Lebanon at the age of nine. She was married at 17, and widowed at 19. While she wanted to finish her education, the principal of the local school said her age and marital status made that impossible.

In 2004, she and her son moved to Canada to start a new life. She signed up for an adult learning program and is making plans to get her high school diploma, go to university, and become a pharmacist.

10. AdLKC 2009 Annual Symposium: Keynote Speaker - Paul Cappon [Video - 29:50] (2009)

AdLKC 2009 Annual Symposium: Keynote Speaker - Paul Cappon [Video - 29:50]

Authors: Adult Learning Knowledge Centre (AdLKC)

Collection: Research Materials

In this 30-minute video, Dr. Paul Cappon, president and CEO of the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL), presents the keynote address to the Adult Learning Knowledge Centre’s (AdLKC’s) fourth and final annual symposium, held in Montreal, Quebec, in June 2009.

Dr. Cappon notes that society puts great value on uncovering the origins of both chronic and transmissible diseases because evidence is key to understanding and, eventually, controlling disease. He argues that learning is just as important as healthcare to the destiny of society, but the importance of research in education isn’t as clearly recognized.

He urges governments to acknowledge that human infrastructure is a public good every bit as important as machines and buildings. He also encourages them to invest in tools to help Canadians assess themselves; promote partnerships with industry to improve workplace education and training; commit to clear, shared goals; and support mobility for students and professions.

A learning culture is important no matter what economic conditions prevail at any given time, he says. Knowing how to learn is the quintessential skill in a knowledge society.

During his presentation, Dr. Cappon switches back and forth between English and French. No subtitles are provided.
