TCALL Receives Grant To Further Adult Literacy
The Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy & Learning (TCALL) received a two-year grant in July from the Texas Workforce Commission totaling over $4.7 million. The grant will fund a project called TRAIN PD @ TCALL — a project that provides research-based professional development, resources, and networking for adult education and literacy (AEL) programs throughout the state of Texas.
TRAIN PD @ TCALL will work directly with the leadership and instructional staff of AEL programs to provide on-site training for them. These training exercises will equip instructors with the skills necessary in assisting other adults participating in AEL programs.
“This year, TRAIN PD @ TCALL will provide training on a number of areas of need to 35 service-provider programs and consortia,” said Federico Salas-Isnardi of TCALL’s leadership team. “The training will include initiatives of such as training on distance education, development and implementation of career pathway programs, and teaching math and language to under-educated adults.”
Since 1989, TCALL has been a beacon for reducing the incidence of adult illiteracy. The work of TCALL has positioned Texas A&M University at the center of Texas’ efforts to support adult education and continues to be one of the nation’s premier adult literacy resource centers.
“By the end of the 2016-2017 project year, TCALL will have worked with all programs to ensure every adult education teacher statewide has access to a state-of-the-art Learning Management System, the Texas AEL PD Portal, to manage their professional development and learning,” Salas-Isnardi said.
