We hope that you’ll join us online in exploring evidence-based practices that you can use in your programs and instruction. Discussion list subscribers may be particularly interested in the Adult Transitions to Postsecondary Education course in light of the recent GED Discussion - what you need to know.

Course Dates: April 11–June 5, 2008

Participants will read and discuss the research on the changing workforce and examine the reasons why adult learners need to go beyond the GED and English language study to advance their earning potential. Participants will also learn about the challenges facing adult students in postsecondary education and investigate strategies and program models that support adult transitions to postsecondary education. Throughout the course, participants will gather local and regional data on the labor market, educational needs, and academic programs and support services offered by area colleges to guide future program development and planning.

Study Circle: Research-based Adult Reading Instruction

Course Dates: April 11–June 12, 2008

Course Description
The Research-based Adult Reading Instruction Study Circle is designed to engage practitioners of adult basic education (ABE), adult secondary education (ASE), and English-for-speakers-of‐other-languages (ESOL) in discussing theories and concepts related to reading instruction. Questions about what research says about teaching adults how to read are particularly relevant as programs and teachers struggle with choosing the most effective ways to develop adults’ reading skills.

Course Format and Schedule: facilitated, online

During this eight-week course, you will work on team projects, engage in self-paced activities and readings, as well as asynchronous discussions with the facilitator and course participants. Chats are scheduled for April 24, May 15, and June 5 at 12:30–1:30 pm or 1:30–2:30 pm EDT
