PIAAC Webinar: OECD Skills Outlook 2013 First Results from the Survey of Adult Skills

LINCS encourages all adult education professionals to join a webinar with Andreas Schleicher, Organisation for Economic Co-operation (OECD) Deputy Director for Education and Skills, to learn about the key messages from the first edition of the OECD Skills Outlook, to be released October 8, 2013. This edition, which will present the results from the first round of the Survey of Adult Skills, a product of the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), will offer readers access to a rich source of data on adult proficiency in literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving in technology-rich environments - the key information-processing skills that are invaluable in 21st century economies - and in various "generic" skills, such as co-operation, communication, and organizing one's time.
