Event: Adult Education Professionals to Share Best Practices at Tutor Institute

October 22, 2014 Category: Uncategorized


The Mayor’s Commission on Literacy is hosting a day of workshops, panels, and information-sharing this Saturday, October 25, for Philadelphia’s adult education professionals, including tutors, teachers, coordinators and other nonprofit professionals and volunteers.

While adult education is less centralized than youth education — it is spread across numerous nonprofits and programs — many people depend on it to learn the skills and capabilities they need to function in society, whether this means advancing their career or paying taxes.

The event, called the Tutor Institute, is an attempt to bring together the people who provide adult education in Philadelphia and help them improve their work and network with one another. This is the Tutor Institute’s third year.

Diane Inverso, senior director at the Mayor’s Commission on Literacy, said that last year’s attendees were really interested in learning more about the recent changes in the Pennsylvania GED exams, and she expects this will also be the case this year.

Sessions will be held throughout the day on topic such as structuring lesson plans for low-level learners, how to better use data and technology, and how to motivate and retain adult learners.

More information is available here, and registration here.
