Adult Education Degree and Credentialing Programs Portal

Many adult educators seek courses and higher education degrees in adult education. However, little has been known about which higher education institutions offer these courses specific to our field. With over 400 unique listings, this Portal is an interactive, one-stop online resource connecting you to higher education degree programs in our field that best meet your professional learning needs.

The Portal will allow you to:
-Easily find program information on higher education degree programs in adult education across the country
Weigh important considerations when choosing the best program fit for you
-Enable you to write and publish reviews of your higher education degree program, like one would review a book on Amazon.com
-Learn more about featured programs and interact with guest bloggers from these programs
-Use social media to share program information with your professional learning networks
-Degree program coordinators can add and update information about their program offerings and participate as guest bloggers on topics of interest to adult education practitioners.

Learn more at www.coabe.org.
This initiative is developed in partnership with TESOL International Association, the American Institutes for Research, the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education, the National Adult Educational Professional Development Consortium, and the Coalition of Lifelong Learning Organizations and is generously funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
