Adult Learning at the Nexus of Life Course, Work & Transitions

This symposium is organized and hosted by Christiane Hof and Michael Bernhard of the Department of Adult and Further Education at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It emerged out of our longstanding interest in the learning of adults in the context of work, life course, and transitions. We very much look forward to welcoming you and engaging in dialogue to gain a deeper understanding of adult learning.
