REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

The Office of Adult Education, in collaboration with District 1199C Training and Upgrading Fund, invites you to submit a proposal to present at our annual Fall Institute. This year’s theme is Cultivating Stronger, Skillful Learning Communities.

We know tutors and instructors have developed creative tools and strategies to support learning. We invite you to share with your peers these tools and strategies. Please submit a proposal for a 60-minute session that features practical and creative strategies teachers, tutors, mentors, and administrators could use to solve challenges and improve learning.

Session Formats and Topics

The session may be presented in any of the following formats:

Panel Presentations

Three to four presenters with a facilitator discuss or investigate best practices in adult education

Roundtable

A short presentation followed by a facilitated discussion

Workshop

An interactive presentation that engages the participants in activities

We welcome submissions on best practices related to the following topics that may be of interest to teachers, tutors, mentors, and administrators.

Proposals submitted will be reviewed by the planning committee.  Priority will be given to proposals that are practice-based and participant-centered.  Submissions from tutors, instructors, and coordinators are welcome. We also welcome proposal submissions from presenter teams, for example a tutor and volunteer coordinator team, or a teacher and classroom aid team.

Integration of Workforce Education Standards
The Workforce Education Standards for Adult Education Programs was created in 2011 through a partnership between workforce literacy providers, higher education, funders, the Workforce Solutions Collaborative, the Philadelphia Workforce Investment Board, the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, and other organizations that have a stake in the quality of the region’s workforce.  All professional development offered by the Commission corresponds to one or more of the standards.  Please refer to the standards (Below), in designing your session and answering the questions below.
