Adult Learning Communities
We are now accepting applications for Cohort 2!
In 2018, the National Literacy Directory introduced a pilot program for adult educators: NLD Adult Learning Communities. Adult educators from 12 states across the country created an online community by sharing best practices on improving student recruitment, engagement, and persistence, and they have begun to implement projects in their communities from the knowledge gained.
We have identified teaching strategies for adult English language learning as our next cohort topic. The NLD will choose up to 12 organizations to participate in an eight-week online cohort to explore current research and best practices to teach adult English language learners. Participants will identify a problem of practice and create an innovation to address the problem. Organizations will then share their innovation with the field via the NLD website.
Chosen organizations will receive a $2,000 stipend to design and field test a program innovation and share their results at the 2019 NCFL conference.
