Learning Lab

An Opportunity for Learning Experimentation and Innovation 


The CAEA Learning Lab


CAEA regularly hosts Learning Labs for adult learning practitioners to experiment with new teaching, facilitation and learning strategies. You are invited to submit a proposal for an experiment you would like to conduct or for a strategy you are developing on which you would like feedback.


What it IS: A space to experiment with a new teaching, learning or facilitation idea, concept or strategy. We encourage you to use the space and participants to try out something new and to focus on teaching and learning strategies and active learning experimentation. It is also possible to convene a learning lab if you want feedback on a research idea in the area of in adult learning.


What it is NOT: This is not a space to showcase your tried and true strategies or to demonstrate processes that you have developed comfort and confidence in. It is not for test-driving a power point presentation or lecture. This is also not a space to conduct formal human subjects research that requires IRB approval.


Have an idea you want to bring to the lab?

Send a brief description of the idea, what questions you are exploring/methods you are interested in testing, intended audience/participants, and ideal room set-up and time-frame to and we will do our best to get it on the calendar and help you gather participants to join in on your experiment.

For more information or to brainstorm an idea contact Pamela Meyer at
