Congratulations to Dr. Shauna Butterwick, who has been inducted into the International Adult and Continuing Eductation (IACE) Hall of Fame! This Hall of Fame has been created to honour leaders in the fields of continuing education and adult learning.
Through her advocacy and research, she has advocated for community as a teacher, advancing how community is a source of significant knowledge, not just a site of research and learning. In partnership with national and local women’s organizations, Butterwick’s research through collaborative, community-based inquiry not only extends academic knowledge of the field, but makes a difference to the practice of adult education within grassroots organizations. Through all of her efforts, Butterwick has moved women’s learning and leadership within Canadian adult education out of the shadows and into the light.
