CHICAGO, IL, USA, August 23, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) is finalizing plans for its 2016 International Conference to be held in Chicago November 9-11 at the Palmer House Hilton, CAEL CEO and President Pamela Tate announced today. The event, Partners in Progress: Unite to Educate America's Workforce, will feature guest speakers, workshops, roundtable sessions and networking opportunities designed to best help adult learners succeed.

When asked about the conference Tate said, "This year's theme: "Partners in Progress: Unite to Educate America's Workforce," examines partnerships among universities and colleges, corporations, government, non-profit organizations, and workforce developers. Attendees will learn how we can work together to help adults thrive in their educational aspirations and flourish in their careers."

CAEL's annual conference brings together more than 500 participants to learn, network, and work together to make lifelong learning accessible to adults around the world. Attendees include college faculty and administrators, HR professionals, workforce developers and representatives from labor and government.

"Over the past several years the landscape of adult learning has exploded with new concepts and approaches, all designed to help adult learners get the credentials and degrees they need to advance in their careers. Some of the best recognized names in the field will be at this conference to discuss what's working, best practices and how we can work together to shape a more effective future. Attendees can learn from these innovators, network with other adult student champions, and exchange ideas. If you are a leader in higher education, you can't afford to miss it," concluded Tate.

According to Paul Fain, News Editor of Inside Higher Ed, attending CAEL's International Conference is a valuable experience. "Lifelong learning is hot, drawing more interest from policy makers, the news media and the general public. That's why it's important to hear from folks with deep experience in working with adult and nontraditional students. I've learned a lot at CAEL conferences, which cover these issues with a great range of depth and breadth," he said.
