A priority for AALPD is to create a web-based resource of research in professional development. The web resource, in coordination with AALPD policies and the priorities for Advocacy and PD Standards, will support work in three areas:
Providing support for the implementation of AALPD policies at national, state and local levels
Promoting growth in professional development practice through the dissemination of new models, approaches, and strategies
Encouraging new research on critical issues related to professional development in the field of adult education and literacy
Current objectives for the Research Priority are to:
Establish a working group to develop the web resource
Update AALPD members on current research in PD
Identify graduate research-focused programs that focus on ABE, Adult ESOL, ASE, etc.
