District and State Considerations for Incorporating Expanded Learning into Competency-Based Systems
Event's details
July 29, 2014

Time:01:00 PM - 02:15 PM


Education systems across the country are beginning to experiment with competency-based models in which students advance based upon mastery. As schools, districts, and states pursue these innovations, it is important to remember that many expanded learning providers have been implementing competency-based models for many years and expanded learning stakeholders should be considered key partners in this work.

Beyond the GED: Can Adult Charters Help Close the Skills Gap?
Event's details
July 30, 2014

Time:09:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: American Institutes For Research, Washington, DC -20007



Of the nearly 20 million adults in the U.S. without a high school degree, many lack basic literacy and numeracy skills, barring them from getting well-paid and, often, in-demand work. The GED is seen as a ticket to better employment, but is this basic credential enough in today’s complex job market?

2014 Fall Research Conference Theme

PRINT PAGE
University of Virginia

The APPAM Fall Research Conference is a multi-disciplinary annual research conference that attracts the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues. The conference is comprised of panels, roundtables, workshops, symposia and poster presentations and is designed to encourage substantive interaction among participants. 

The 2014 Fall Research Conference is being held from November 6 - 8 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Conference Theme: Global Challenges, New Perspectives

Policymakers around the world face complex challenges – challenges such as climate change, increased migration, lingering effects of the Great Recession, population aging, changes in family formation, growth in the demand for educated workers, rising health care costs, and increased economic, political, and social inequality. The theme of this year’s conference is what we can do to address these challenges, drawing on our knowledge base in public policy analysis and management but also bringing in new perspectives – in particular, from other disciplines and other countries.

APPAM has always emphasized including diverse participants and perspectives in the Fall Research Conference. This year, we will continue to expand on that diversity by encouraging papers, panels, and roundtables that include presenters, chairs, and discussants from a range of disciplines (such as public policy, social policy, public administration, management, economics, sociology, education, public health, social work, psychology, statistics, history, political science, environmental sciences, science and technology, and others) and countries. As policy challenges become increasingly complex and global, the goal of the conference is to make sure we draw on the widest range of knowledge to understand those challenges and help formulate appropriate responses.
