Students from the Holyoke Community College Adult Learning Center present a personal look into the struggles oand triumphs of recovering from an interrupted education. Former HCC/ALC student Ruben Sepulveda reminds the audience, "Adult education is not just about GED prep--that is secondary--it provides adults with the opportunity to dream again."
TEDxPioneerValley, an independently organized event licensed by TED, explores learning that takes place in unexpected ways, cracking open traditional notions of how learning happens. The day-long conference at Amherst College Jan. 21, 2012, is presented in collaboration with the Holyoke Community College Adult Learning Center, Amherst College, Smith College and Mount Holyoke College.
