Welcome to the LINCS Evidence-based Professional Development Group.

The group is a community of practice for adult educators 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 include:

  • State capacity to establish or operate a high-quality professional development program
  • Evidence-based practices related to designing, implementing, and evaluating adult literacy professional development either at a local program or through a high-quality professional development state program
  • Teacher quality and effectiveness
  • Professional development systems
  • Approaches and methods
  • Factors that influence the effectiveness of professional development
  • Related policies
  • Provision of professional development for eligible providers that meet the requirements set forth in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
  • Delivering professional development through electronic means (e.g. online, virtual, blended experiences)
