VAILL is an annual summer conference that is ?. sponsored by the Office of '17 Adult Education and , Literacy and offers profes- "- sional development for adult educators and practi- tioners across the Commonwealth by pre- senting workshops and " activities on a wide variety of topics. The strands of workshops this year cov- ered classroom instruction, career pathways in WIOA, . programmatic topics, and topics supporting specific populations. For partici- pants, there were 58 differ- ent workshops to choose from with the opportunity to attend six different ses- sions. .. The theme of VAILL 2016 was "Learn-Connect- Achieve," which reflects the new direction of adult education.

This year, I even had the oppor- tunity to serve on the VAILL Planning Committee. I always leave the conference feeling bet- ter equipped to meet the learning needs of my stu- dents as I prepare to begin the fall term. Program Manager Linda Allen reported, "One of the VAILL sessions I might be, engaging in dia- logue about what should be, and innovating what will be. Through this process, I examined the strengths of the Southwest Regional Adult Education Program, examined oppor- tunities to improve system alignment and services, considered what aspira- tions I have for the local program, and considered what will be the positive impact on our adult learn- ers." "VAILL was a valuable experience," commented Susan Harris. "Being able to gather with adult educa- tion professionals from across the state allows us to develop lasting partner- ships and glean from dif- ferent experiences in the varying fields of study. Representation at the con- ference from the Governor's office and staff from many regions demon- strated the importance of what we do and the urgency to meet the needs of the population we serve." ff you didn't finish high school, contact Southwest Regional Adult Education at 866-581-9935.
