LINCS Community Announcements
- Maximize Your Summer Break: Learn with LINCS! LINCS has launched the LINCS Learning Portal as part of ongoing efforts to connect adult education practitioners to free, high-quality professional development opportunities. The LINCS Learning Portal houses self-paced online courses from OVAE initiatives. Among the online course offerings is the first LINCS online course on science, titled: Engaging Adult Learners in Science. To learn more about how to access the learning portal and the courses offered, visit: https://community.lincs.ed.gov/notice/maximize-your-summer-break-learn-lincs
- Revised Password Policy: We have heard from the members and have worked on the back end to make the LINCS Community more user-friendly by revising the password policy. While the revised policy allows for shorter passwords (8 characters, instead of 14), there are still several requirements that must remain in place. See the announcement for more details: https://community.lincs.ed.gov/notice/password-policy-revised
New Group Bulletin
- The National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) Online Courses for Adult Educators. NCFL has developed two online courses: Getting Started with Standards-Based Education and Using Standards in Adult Education.
