Linking Theory and Practice. Inservice Program for Adult Literacy and Basic Education Personnel, Module 4.
National Staff Development Committee for Vocational Education and Training, Chadstone (Australia).
This module is the fourth of five integrated professional development modules for adult literacy and basic education (ALBE) personnel. This module is in the form of a 6-hour workshop, the purposes of which are to develop further the practitioners' knowledge of the theoretical basis of teaching literacy in ALBE programs, to provide a supportive adult learning environment in which practitioners can think critically about their own knowledge and understanding of theory, and to encourage practitioners to define good practice in relation to current and endorsed theory and to reflect critically on their own practice. An overview consists of these components: duration, purpose, relationship to competency standards, prerequisites and/or corequisites, summary of content, delivery, list of learning outcomes, assessment criteria, minimum essential resources, and suggested references. Presenter's guidelines correlate content to the guidelines and resources in a three-column table format. The workshop resources section contains handouts, transparency masters, suggested resources, and workshop evaluation form. (YLB)
