About the Adult Literacy Professional Development Discussion List

Welcome to the LINCS Adult Literacy Professional Development (PD) Discussion List moderated by Jackie Taylor.

The PD List is an on-going professional development forum to:

  • Build a network of professional developers
  • Communicate fresh ideas and promising practices
  • Provide professional development for professional developers based on needs or interests
  • Contribute the voice of the field in shaping policy initiatives

The PD List is open to everyone working or interested in adult literacy professional development. Hot topics, key issues, resources, research, and professional wisdom shared on the PD List are often times archived in the Professional Development section of the ALE Wiki. These Web pages are collaboratively developed by some Professional Development List subscribers. Anybody can add materials to these pages; it is quick and easy to do. Thus, the PD List and the Professional Development section of the ALE Wiki go hand-in-hand: resources posted to the List help to grow the Wiki, and resources posted in the Wiki can serve as springboards for discussion on the Professional Development List. You do not have to contribute to the Wiki to subscribe to the List.
