The Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) has provided plentiful data on the literacy, numeracy, and technology-informed problem solving skills of U.S. adults. But what do the data tell you about your learners, and how can you use it to advocate for them?
The National Coalition for Literacy will provide some answers to these questions in a webinar, Health Literacy Through the PIAAC Lens, on Monday, May 4, 3:00-4:15 pm Eastern time.
The webinar, to be moderated by Deborah Kennedy, Center for Applied Linguistics, will include three presentations:
- Esther Prins, Penn State University, on adult health and its relationship to literacy, numeracy, and technological problem-solving skills
- Dan Rafter, Spitfire Strategies, on using data to create effective advocacy messages around adult health and health literacy
- Allison Kokkoros, Carlos Rosario International Charter School, on advocacy in action for adult health and health literacy
See you at the webinar!
