SABES reviews and identifies research for the adult education field in order to help Massachusetts adult education practitioners design high quality programs, provide rigorous instruction, and implement effective educational and advising practices. In addition to adult education studies that meet the “gold standard” for scientific research, SABES relies on the most rigorous and relevant research available, including evidence-based practice. 

To support this work, SABES has been reviewing and updating resources posted in the SABES Resource Library so educators will have access to the most relevant and current research available.This work is ongoing, so be sure to create an account on this site if you don’t already have one. Once you create an account, you will receive email notifications when a SABES PD center posts new research, evidence-based practice, or other resources to the website, as well as when new PD events are posted to the calendar. If you already have a SABES account, check your settings to make sure you are signed up to receive notifications from the PD centers of your choice.
