Report of the Adult Learning Knowledge Centre's 2007 National Symposium (2007)

The Right to Learn

This report summarizes the proceedings of the Adult Learning Knowledge Centre’s second national symposium, held in June 2007 in Halifax. The event brought together more than 200 people representing community-based groups, non-profit organization, post-secondary institutes, government, and private-sector groups from across Canada for discussions on the theme The Right to Learn.

The authors have provided brief descriptions of the 32 presentations, offered during concurrent sessions, on a variety of topics, including the knowledge of Aboriginal seniors; theatre and art as adult learning tools; quality assurance in prior learning assessment (PLAR); accessibility to French language learning in rural areas; online adult training; and literacy in the workplace.

The authors have also included accounts of plenary presentations on a conceptual framework on adult learning designed to aid data collection on formal and informal adult learning, and the impact of literacy challenges on Canada's social capital and economic productivity.

The report includes the full text of the keynote speech given by Abrar Hasan of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
