Evidence-based Practice: A Workshop for Training Adult Basic Education, TANF
and One-Stop Practitioners and Program Administrators

The National Institute for Literacy presents this one-day workshop created
by the National Center for Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) to
help practitioners understand what evidence-based practice is and what
research is all about. It is an interactive, fun, and experiential set of
activities that helps those with "research phobia" to feel comfortable
looking at and judging the usefulness of adult basic education and
literacy-related research. In the afternoon, there is time to think about
how to apply what is learned once back in your program, especially how to
integrate what's been learned about reading with your program's priorities
for improvement.

Presenters: Cristine Smith and Kaye Beall

Full-day Session: April 28, 2008, 8:30 am-3:30 pm
