Project APEX: Promoting Practitioner Excellence. A 353 Special Demonstration Project. Final Report, FY 1998-1999.
Royce and Royce, Inc., Lancaster, PA.
A project was conducted in Pennsylvania to provide technical support to the APEX nomination and awards activity that recognizes outstanding adult education practitioners. The project included a revision of the nomination form and procedures developed for APEX in 1998 to align them with Adult Teacher Competency Standards developed in 1999. The APEX project assisted the Pennsylvania Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) to identify and honor three ABLE teachers, who were then recognized as outstanding adult practitioners at the 1999 Midwinter Conference. Nomination forms were revised, the teachers were identified, the teachers were honored at a luncheon and at an awards session, and a small booklet describing the awards winners and their programs was distributed at the luncheon. The project provided examples of practitioner proficiencies and illustrated important competencies as defined by program administrators. It was recommended that the award recipients' stories be posted on the ABLESite website. (The project documents, including nomination form, criteria, winners' profiles, and luncheon program, are appended to the project report.) (KC)
