This presentation outlines an integrated model of literacy and skills development for adults.
The model is based on four components. The first involves analyzing the environment, including the needs of learners, the socio-economic context, the cultural context, and the local educational resources.
The second component is the creation of strategic local partnerships, which involves mobilizing educational resources; creating local planning structures; and developing strategic collaboration and intervention agreements.
The third component is the linking of the appropriate essential skills, generic skills, and specialized skills for an integrated intervention specifically geared to adults, while the final component gathering feedback and using it to reassess the actions taken.
Authors Donald Lurette and Jocelyn Charron gave this presentation during The Centre for Literacy Summer Institute 2012, held in Montreal, Quebec. The centre supports best practices and informed policy development in literacy and essential skills by building links between research, policy, and practice.
