Advancing Innovation in Adult Education Application Now Available

Is your local adult education program implementing innovative practices that lead to improved learner outcomes?

Consider submitting an application for your program’s innovative practice to be part of the Advancing Innovation in Adult Education project funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE). This project is identifying, highlighting, and disseminating innovative practices in adult education that lead to improved learner outcomes.

Before preparing an application, use the Advancing Innovation Checklist located on the project’s webpage to think about the characteristics of your program’s practice and whether your practice may meet the Advancing Innovation project’s definition of “innovative.” If your program’s practice meets this definition, we encourage you to submit an application to the project.
