Adult and Continuing Education

The purpose of this site is to help you explore issues in adult and continuing education including access, quality, cost, providers and the use of technology. Of particular interest are the needs of a diverse population of adult learners, especially with respect to part time study; factors related to the successful completion of CE programs; the roles of colleges, universities, professional organizations and the work place in the provision of credit and non-credit CE; the impact of educational technologies and the accessibility and quality of CE.

In particular, this site was developed to help support a course called "Continuing Education - Special Topics Course: TPS 1820H" delivered by Professor Angela Hildyard, Associate professor, Theory and Policy Studies OISE/UT and Vice-President, Human Resources and Equity. Professor Hildyard was my Thesis Supervisor. Without her dedication and clear understanding of how I worked, I would have never been able to complete my Doctorate. For this Angela, I am eternally grateful!
