Celebrating Lifelong Learning in our Communities on March 29 and March 30, 2012, is a conference that focuses its attention on how lifetime and life wide opportunities contribute to the strength of the various communities we are all a part of. From our own personal learning development, to our workplaces, to post secondary and community learning, we contribute to the strength of our communities through the learning we engage in during our lifetime. The Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta is very pleased to celebrate its Centenary with this signature event held during International Adult Learners week.
