Most adult education tutors and teachers receive quality pre-service training before they start working with students. For many, this training is delivered without the instructor having adult education experience to provide context for what they’re learning. Once they begin teaching, they have little time for or access to additional training, either because the local provider lacks the staff/resources, or the instructor and provider are not aware of what is available.
ProLiteracy's Teacher Training Plus project attempts to address this issue by:
1) Surveying tutors, teachers, and program administrators about the issues instructors encounter once they begin working with students, 2) Designing webinars that present best-practice instructional strategies, and 3) Providing just-in-time small group coaching sessions to help instructors implement the strategies. Come hear about the results using this model!
