Earlier this month the English Forward team was lucky enough to get to spend two days with some great minds in adult education! Stephen Reder, David Rosen, and Heide Spruck Wrigley joined our team here in Austin, Texas, to talk through some of the major questions faced by English Forward and adult educators around the country. The result was that a) the English Forward team left with MORE to think about after the planning, not less, and b) we have been able to develop a way forward. We’re working to make the English Forward training more accessible to more programs and create a suite of new training and resources to help instructors work with their students to achieve their goals!
Thank you to Stephen, David, and Heide for dedicating some of their time to our work and our community!
