Welcome to the LINCS Community Professional Development group!

The target audience for this group is adult educators, staff managers, and policy makers. The focus of the group is to discuss issues and evidence-based practices related to designing, implementing, and evaluating adult literacy professional development. As a network of those working or interested in staff development, the group shares fresh ideas and promising practices, provides professional development for professional developers based on needs or interests, and contributes the voice of the field in shaping policy initiatives.

Topics discussed include:

  • Building state capacity to establish or operate a high-quality professional development program, and policies and factors that influence effectiveness 
  • Using evidence-based practices, approaches and methods to design, implement, and evaluate adult literacy professional development systems, including the provision of professional development for eligible providers that meet Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requirements
