Adult Educators with a Global Perspective.
Cassara, Beverly Benner
The profession of adult education provides many excellent opportunities to enhance global understanding. One way for adult educators to become involved in international activities is through the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE). As a federation of adult education organizations that are organized in seven regions throughout the world, the ICAE maintains a series of international networks that are currently focusing on four high priority issues: the education of women, the environment, literacy, and peace and human rights. Adult educators can participate in ICAE activities through its institutional members, including the American Association of Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE) and Coalition of Adult Education Organizations. Among the many ways in which adult educators can become involved in international activities are the following: reading information on international programs available in publications of the ICAE, United Nations, and adult educational organizations in foreign countries; corresponding with foreign pen pals; joining volunteer organizations that sponsor international activities; receiving/housing foreign guests; applying to a foreign exchange program; joining the Peace Corps; and consulting. (This conference presentation also includes detailed information about the history of the author's involvement in the ICAE and her own international activities.) (MN)
