NIFL Professional Development Survey

Survey Link:




Adult education teachers and administrators: 


Have you ever wished you could have some input into decisions that are being made nationally on professional development opportunities?  If so, here is your chance to express your opinion and share your thoughts. 


The National Institute for Literacy is conducting a survey on the professional development needs of adult education practitioners across the country.  We need your help to gather information that reflects your own needs in the area of professional development as well as how you think professional development should be offered.  We are asking for only 10-15 minutes of your time.

Information collected from the professional development needs survey will be used by the Institute and the LINCS Regional Resource Centers to (1) give us insights on how Institute-produced materials and training can be disseminated and (2) identify areas where the Institute might want to develop additional materials and trainings. The Regional Resource Centers will use the data to develop a regional dissemination plan that will include how to best disseminate and present Institute-sponsored resources and training in partnership with the state organizations.


The National Institute for Literacy, a federal agency, provides leadership on literacy issues, including the improvement of reading instruction for children, youth, and adults. In consultation with the U.S. Departments of Education, Labor, and Health and Human Services, the Institute serves as a national resource on current, comprehensive literacy research, practice, and policy.


The National Institute for Literacy is committed to the dissemination of high-quality resources to help practitioners use evidence-based instructional practices that improve outcomes in adult learners’ literacy skills. LINCS is the backbone of the Institute’s dissemination system, providing information on a wide variety of literacy relevant topics, issues, and resources through regional resource centers, collections of resources, and discussion lists.  For more information about the National Institute for Literacy and LINCS visit
