Here is a list of conferences and events happening this academic year.




COABE Webinars in October

“Collaboration: The Connecting of a Community”

Date: Friday, October 22, 2021

Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm EST

Presented by: Phyllis Atwood
With like-minded leaders working towards a common goal, collaboration seems effortless. What if the goal requires partnerships outside the organization? How do you “sell” a grassroots program seated in ABE culminating in knowledge and skills to promote community recovery? Collaboration inside and outside the classroom gives the student a goal, increases motivation and self-efficacy, and fills the gap from underqualified to employment and apprenticeships.

“CASAS and BurlingtonEnglish: Using Data and Curriculum to Prepare Students for Civics and Citizenship Success”

Date: Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm EST

Presented by: Jane Eg├╝ez and Robert Breitbard
Civics and citizenship are more important in adult education than ever before.
