"What's the Buzz?" Final Report.
What's the Buzz?, v15 n1-5 1995-96
A project was undertaken to design an information dissemination newsletter to meet the professional development needs of Pennsylvania's adult basic and literacy education (ABLE) practitioners. It was decided that an 8- to 10-page-long newsletter would be produced for 5 months that included information/articles from as many sources as could be identified and featured an inviting format. An editorial board of experienced adult educators was assembled to serve as resource persons to the editor, and a comprehensive, up-to-date mailing list of the more than 4,000 ABLE educators in Pennsylvania was compiled. The newsletter's contents and format were based on responses to surveys of adult educators in Pennsylvania, input from the newsletter's editorial board, and comments/suggestions submitted by readers. Five issues of the newsletter, "What's the Buzz?," were published. Each issue contained feature articles, summaries of the contents of various professional newsletters of interest to adult educators, news briefs on people and programs, and dates of upcoming events. Among the topics discussed in the feature articles were the following: techniques for motivating students; service coordination and accountability; adult literacy on the Internet; adult literacy and welfare reform; and work force development. (Attached are the newsletter's five issues.) (MN)
