The Role of Professional Development in Bridging Research and Practice in Adult Literacy and Basic Education
Smith, Cristine
Journal of Research and Practice for Adult Literacy, Secondary, and Basic Education, v5 n3 p35-37 Win 2016
In this brief article, Cristine Smith discusses the development and use of professional development activities at the national, state and local program level. Professional development systems and funding exist in every state, and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) has prioritized high-quality professional development for practitioners. Smith explains that models for such professional development and professional learning activities do exist, on NCSALL's website (, and can be adapted to help practitioners learn about research through a four-step sequence. Herein, she describes each of the four steps and how they can benefit practitioners.
