The Ohio Association for Adult and Continuing Education (OAACE) is the largest and oldest professional adult education organization in the state of Ohio. The organization’s mission is to represent and serve the providers of adult education including teachers, administrators, coordinators, staff, volunteers, and instructional aides.
This year's conference will be held on October 24 and 25, 2019, in Westerville at the Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris Hotel. In order to make this year’s event a success, we need practitioners from across the region to share their expertise and best practices in adult education.
Once again, we are proud to be hosting the Ohio Writer's Conference to honor the outstanding writing accomplishments of adults participating in adult education programs. We are looking forward to an expanded student presence for this popular and inspiring celebration.
We also will be offering a free Google Digital Boot Camp, thanks to our national organization, COABE!

Specific topics of interest recently indicated by practitioners include free distance education software options, new high school equivalency test overviews, ESOL standards, de-escalating student behavior in the classroom, motivation of staff and students, teacher effectiveness, and data-driven recruitment.
