Adopting NDN Projects. A Guide for Adult Education Programs.
Office of Vocational and Adult Education (ED), Washington, DC.
This guide is designed to assist adult education leaders and practitioners to consider carefully the adoption of one or more of the available National Diffusion Network (NDN) projects. It is also intended to help them understand their opportunity and responsibility for improving adult education practice through the proper use of adoption techniques. Answers to 13 questions about adopting NDN projects appear first. Section A is an NDN Projects Matrix. Each project is described in terms of characteristics (educational area, adopting agencies, populations, outcomes); adoption requirements (training days, number of trainees, training location, additional staff, special facilities, special equipment, relocation time, evaluation by adopter); and services available (awareness materials, orientation workshop, conference presentations, technical assistance, followup, demonstration sites, and on-site evaluation). Section B contains project descriptions (target audience, description, evidence of effectiveness, implementation requirements, financial requirements, services available, and contact person(s). Other contents include examples of key elements, sample adoption agreements, state facilitator agreement form, statewide implementation model, adoption data form, a list of NDN state facilitators, and a list of state directors of adult education.
