U.S. Education Department Launches Improved, Online Professional Learning Community with New Features to Inform and Inspire Adult Educators

Source : US Department of Education
Sept 13, 2012

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education re-launched its first-ever online, professional learning community for adult educators called the “Literacy Information and Communication System” (LINCS). The site provides adult educators with access to resources; on-demand, Web-based professional development opportunities, including online courses and targeted face-to-face trainings; and a connected network of practitioners, called a “community of practice.” LINCS also offers specialized tools, including the ability for educators across the country to engage in real-time discussions.

 

The new and improved Web site features enhanced functionality and ease of use, providing a collection of quality, evidence-based online resources for adult educators and other practitioners within the adult education system.

 

One of the key features of the Web site is the “LINCS Community” that includes 16 topic-area groups. These virtual community groups provide an opportunity for those in the field and related fields to engage in topic-specific networking and information sharing activities. By engaging in a group, educators are able to share and obtain real-time answers to peer-driven questions based on their collective professional experiences.

 

“We want adult educators to use LINCS to improve their practice and connect with peers and experts. We believe that a professionalized teaching workforce and high-quality professional development are key to improving program effectiveness and raising student outcomes so that more adults can complete college or training,” said Assistant Secretary for Vocational and Adult Education Brenda Dann-Messier.

 

LINCS receives support from the U.S. Department of Education’s Adult Education—National Leadership Activities Program, which funds activities to enhance the quality of adult education and literacy programs nationwide. To join a LINCS community group, visit http://lincs.ed.gov.
