This section highlights partner PD organizations and events, such as professional association conferences or U.S. Department of Education initiatives. Organizations represented here include, among others:

LINCS Professional Development

"As a resource gathering and professional development dissemination system, LINCS provides adult education practitioners with numerous ways to engage in personal and collaborative professional development activities. All LINCS materials and activities are created using evidence-based research and aim to help practitioners design and deliver high-quality educational opportunities to adult learners."

New England Literacy Resource Center

New England Literacy Resource Center supports the right of all adult members of our community to access adult education and training services regardless of race, religion, gender identity, immigration status, nationality, age or ability. We support programs in protecting the safety, dignity, and civil rights of all who attend. 

Ed Tech Center 

New! Massachusetts adult education programs are invited to participate in the Spring 2021 EdTech Maker Space initiative! This national opportunity, offered by our SABES partner EdTech Center at World Education, will give you a better understanding of digital skills, how to teach/learn them, what resources are out there, and more! Plus, this collaborative setting is going to be interactive and fun.
