Summary

An evaluation was conducted of the effectiveness of the Adult Educators Development Project (AEDP) at Lehman College of the City University of New York, a 3-year professional development program combining meetings, research projects, site visits, reading, and writing that was designed to facilitate the professional development of instructors in adult basic education, literacy, and English for speakers of other languages. Data for the evaluation were obtained from interviews of a total of 11 participants from the project's 3 program years, limited observations of the program seminars, and a review of various project documents. According to the participants interviewed, the project objectives were initially unclear difficult to grasp, thus fostering a sense of disorientation and confusion. Eventually, a process of empirical inquiry was initiated at the project sites, and the AEDP's goals were brought into clearer focus. Most literacy teachers and administrators who participated in the AEDP praised it as a vehicle for professional and personal development. The project seminars, site visits, and emphasis on alternative assessment were considered especially valuable. Only a few minor criticisms of the AEDP project were expressed, and it was deemed worth repeating and expanding. (Appended is information about the study sample.) (MN)
