NAEPDC 2002 National Training Institute

November 6-9, 2002

San Francisco, CA

The Professional Development Committee, Linda Warner (IN), Chair, is designing the 2002 National Training Institute in two parts.  To ensure that the institute serves your needs, we would like your input.  Please complete and submit this survey by July 3, 2002.

Name of State Director:            State:

PART I.  Because of the federal focus on evidenced based services and our interest in quality services, Part I will include a variety of resources that will help you (1) find and understand applications and implications of recent research findings, and (2) design a going to scale process for integrating those findings into your current systems with maximum efficiency and minimum disruption.

1.  Have you integrated or are you in the process of integrating research findings into your adult education program? 
Yes       No

    a.  If so, tell us abut the topic or finding you are integrating, your stage of integration, and your experiences your would like to share with others.  Your experience can inform the development of the Institute.


PART II.  There are a number of issues, topics, or questions about which you and your colleagues need additional information.  Therefore, PART II of the Institute will provide you with those resources.

2.  What issues or questions have you had in the past year for which you would like options, models, or alternatives presented during the institute?  What do you need to know more about?  List any and all topics, issues, or questions.






GOING TO SCALE Training: The Going to Scale training and resource booklet have helped states organize and complete system improvements.  However, some new state directors missed the original training in 2000, or you may want members of your staff to be acquainted with this resource.

 3.  Would you be interested in participating in a three hour briefing on the “Going to Scale” process and materials on Wednesday afternoon, November 6 from 1-4 pm prior to the beginning of the Institute?      Yes      No

4.  Are you interested in helping design our professional development activities?  If so, click yes below and volunteer to join the Professional Development Committee now comprised of Patricia Bennett (MD), Mary Ann Jackson (WI), Naomi Scales (AL), and Sharlene Walker (OR).  If you have suggestions regarding this fall’s Institute, feel free to contact Linda at  or any of the Workgroup members.

Yes, I am interested in serving on the Professional Development Committee.
