Improving Adult Literacy Instruction: Options for Practice and Research. Findings from The National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council Report -- Webinars
This series of webinars from May 2012 disseminated findings from the National Research Council consensus report, Improving Adult Literacy: Options for Practice and Research.
Panelists included members on the Committee on Learning Sciences: Foundations and Applications to Adolescent and Adult Literacy, as well as policymakers, business leaders, administrators of adult literacy programs, public and private funders of research and development for literacy, and developers of curricula and education technologies. The series of webcasts focused on key findings from the report, recommendations and challenges to advancing adult literacy research, and practices for effective literacy instruction. The discussion was designed to establish some common understandings about the report and considered how the report may be used to shape and support activities at federal, state and local levels for improving adult literacy instruction.
