5.  Transitions Discussion List on NIFL

A new electronic discussion list has started! The name of the new NIFL list is:  The Transitions to Post-secondary Education Discussion List.  The list is moderated by Ellen Hewett from the National College Transition Network (NCTN) at World Education, Inc. The purpose of this list is to provide an on-going professional development forum for practitioners, administrators, researchers, and policy-makers from the Adult Secondary Education (ASE), English Language Acquisition (ELA), post-secondary education, and workforce development fields. This list promotes the sharing of information, research, expertise, and resources to help bridge the gap between what ASE and ELA programs traditionally offer and what most adult learners need to succeed in post-secondary education. Topics such as curriculum and instruction, college readiness, counseling, assessment, program development, career awareness, data collection, and partnerships will be explored.

To join, go to: Don't forget to answer the confirmation email when it comes!
