Call For Abstracts: The Adult Learner 2022 (Aontas)

Posted on 16 Mar 2021

Aontas are calling for abstracts for the 2022 edition of The Adult Learner.

This edition of The Adult Learner will explore our understanding of success in adult, community, and further education. It will explore questions such as:

•          What do we mean by learner success?

•          Should we have set definitions of success or does this differ depending on the individual or the programme?

•          What constitutes both individual and collective success in adult learning?

•          Does policy dictate the measurement of success or can we use these measurements to shape adult education policy?

Abstracts can take two forms: research papers and practice papers. If you are interested in submitting an abstract, you can find more information on our website.

Abstracts should be 400-500 words. You should also include a short bio in addition to your abstract (no more than 200 words). Please send your abstract and bio to by Friday, 25th June 2021.

For more information please contact Eve Cobain, AONTAS Research Officer at:
