Disario, Nancy; Pappalardo, Michele F.; Gonzalez, Manuel A.
This project provided a year-long skill development Workforce Education Institute for 100 work force literacy providers and instructors in Pennsylvania. The institute included an intensive, 3-day summer workshop, 2 follow-up workshops, and a 2-day spring workshop designed to meet the individual needs of the participants. In evaluations submitted by the participants, more than 96 percent stated that they had acquired new concepts from the topics presented, and that they would incorporate new concepts and materials into their programs. Based on the response from the participants, future projects in the area of work force development would be considered relevant to adult literacy providers because of the rapid changes occurring both on the state and federal level. (Appendixes to the report contain workshop content, framework, and evaluation surveys.) (KC)
