About the Workforce Competitiveness Discussion List

Welcome to the LINCS Workforce Competitiveness Discussion List moderated by Donna Brian.

The purpose of this list is to provide an ongoing professional development forum for adult educators who are interested in or provide work-focused basic skills instruction. The focus of this online forum is to:

  • Discuss issues relevant to providing research- and evidence-based educational services to adults transitioning to the workplace and to incumbent workers;
  • Share information and resources that can be used to inform practitioners about these issues and improve practice; and,
  • Enrich and improve public policies related to workforce education and workforce development systems.

Topics may include, for example, collaboration with workforce system partners, marketing, program design, instruction, curricula, assessment, evaluation, staff training, funding, research, and policy.
