Los Angeles Regional Adult Education Consortium (LARAEC) to host 3rd annual conference:

The Los Angeles Regional Adult Education Consortium (LARAEC) is hosting the third annual LARAEC conference: The LARAEC Experience on Saturday, March 9th at the Universal Sheraton, Universal City, CA.

The conference is open to staff and faculty from all member-districts (Burbank Unified School District, Culver City Unified School District, Los Angeles Community College District, Los Angeles Unified School District, and Montebello Unified School District). The conference is free. Registration is open. Visit LARAEC.net

to register.

The conference planning committee has put together a broad array of presentations from all member-districts, partner agencies, and educational organizations. The focus of this year’s sessions is to provide resources, strategies, and models that can be immediately replicated at school sites and in classrooms. A description of all of our workshops can be found at LARAEC.net. The Conference will also include the new Innovation Awards which will showcase best practices and innovations throughout the consortium. Nomination forms are available through your site administrator.  

LARAEC welcomes author Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab as the keynote speaker. Sara Goldrick-Rab is Professor of Higher Education Policy & Sociology at Temple University, and Founder of the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice in Philadelphia, as well as the Wisconsin HOPE Lab. She is best known for her innovative research on food and housing insecurity in higher education, having led the three largest national studies on the subject, and for her work on making public higher education free. Her latest book, Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream (University of Chicago, 2016), is an Amazon bestseller and a 2018 winner of the Grawemeyer Award, and has been featured on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. The Chronicle of Higher Education calls her “a defender of impoverished students and a scholar of their struggles,” she is ranked 7th in the nation among education scholars according to Education Week, and in April 2018 the Carnegie Corporation awarded her the Carnegie Fellowship.

In an effort to promote collaboration between member-districts, attendees, and presenters, The LARAEC conference team has decided to move toward creating a digital experience.  We have chosen Sched.com for conference management. Through Sched.com, you will have access to the conference schedule, presenter profiles, attendee profiles, presentation materials, venue map, and exhibitor information.  You will be able to create your own schedule for the day and make your own attendee profile. Once logged into Sched.com you will be able to receive announcements and updates before and after the conference.

We hope to see all of you there!
