AXIS: Accessible eXpress Intercommunication for Staff Development. Final Report.
Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13, Lancaster, PA.
Project Accessible eXpress Intercommunication for Staff development (AXIS) was undertaken to coordinate, unify, and systematize communications related to the staff development programs administered by Pennsylvania's Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) by developing a unified system of print materials, online connectivity, and general communication. The following were among the main project activities: organize online communications (via America Online) and a chat forum to link Pennsylvania's regional staff development centers; maintain an online library of staff development resources; centralize and unify publications funded by ABLE; produce "The Pennsylvania Adult Basic and Literacy Education Handbook for Program Administrators, 1996 Edition"; develop a newsletter called "FOCUS on Networking" for adult literacy educators/programs and refine and establish supplier support for the adult education professional newsletter "What's The Buzz?"; produce brochures, fliers, and other materials publicizing various ABLE programs/projects; participate in and report on the activities of the Pennsylvania Adult Literacy Practitioner Network; and attend various meetings, workshops, and other activities related to ABLE. Despite budget and time constraints, all project goals were exceeded. The materials developed during Project AXIS were positively received and were concluded to provide communications support for ABLE staff development activities that did not previously exist. (MN)
