This event has passed.

Despite widespread recognition of the need for measurably effective and accessible learning opportunities for adult Americans, the nation is without shared scientific or policy goals for serving this vast population and lacks protocols for the cross-sector collaborative activity such service requires.

Our project seeks to envision how to fill this gap and in July of 2021, a four part virtual series brought together 180 education and learning experts who have been charged with developing this much needed comprehensive research agenda.

Join us on January 19th at 9:00am (Pacific) to hear and discuss highlights of our report that was submitted to the National Science Foundation. Our conversation will be lead by Paul Fain of The Job, in conversation with:

*Luther Jackson, Program Manager, Silicon Valley NOVAworks job center
*Katherine Newman, System Chancellor for Academic Programs, University of Massachusetts
*Sarah Turner, University Professor of Economics and Education, University of Virginia

A no cost registration is required.
