Dear Technology list colleagues,

I am happy to announce a unique opportunity for the members of the
Technology list to participate in a research study. Heidi
Silver-Pacuilla is conducting research on independent on-line learning
by adults. She will be asking for your professional wisdom to include as
part of the project overall. Heidi will be asking a few questions of
list members later in the day, and will then rejoin the list later in
the spring for a discussion of her research findings.

Following is a brief bio and short description of the study:

Heidi Silver-Pacuilla is a researcher at the American Institutes for
Research in Washington, DC. She has been working in literacy for (gulp)
over 20 years. Most recently, she was in a position as a disabilities
specialist at Pima College Adult Ed in Tucson, AZ, working with teaching
colleagues to understand their service delivery system and conducting
research with students with disabilities. Her areas of interest revolve
around adult learning, learning with technology, and learning

Intro to the study:

Through a grant from the National Institute for Literacy (NIFL) she will
lead a small study on independent online learning by adults.

Ultimately, this paper will offer recommendations for portal development
and program management, but primarily a window into what adults are
already doing outside of our programs and classes.

Regards and looking forward to your participation,


Mariann Fedele
